Introduction.

ONE who has long sought the welfare of sailors, sends this forth with the prayer that, by reading the texts on the sea, many brave sons of the ocean may be led to study the infallible chart of Scripture, and, by its guidance,

• Shape a course direct for Heaven,'

with the Lord Jesus Christ as the Captain of their salvation.

Look'd from the deck, land out of sight,

The ship, fast sailing, free;
On either side the ocean grand,

How wonderful to see!

Thought of the Ark, its floating safe

Of Noah and the dove;
Of Jesus walking on the wave,

And of His saying love.
