God of all beyond the sea

Send my children home to me

If they are gone, please hear my plea

Let the waves wash over me

Sea bird flies where none can hide
Above the sea so dark and wide
Can you be my eyes today?
Are my children on their way?

Porpoise leaps above the waves
I see him flash, I see him play
May my children ride you home?
Across the cold and windswept foam

God of heaven, God of light
God of Earth and endless night
God of the sea, where I may rest
Rock my children on your breast

God of all beyond the sea
Send my children home to me
If they are gone, please hear my plea
Let the waves wash over me

A lament for those who died in the 2004 tsunami, and those who waited for them on the shores.
