A Celtic prayer is attributed to the 10th-century Irish king, Cormac mac Cuileannáin.
Will You steer my frail black bark
O’er the dark broad ocean’s foam?
Will You come, Lord to my boat?
Where afloat, my will would roam?
Yours the mighty, Yours the small,
Your to make men fall like rain.
God, will You grant aid to me
as I come o’er the upheaving main?
