“There is a world that surrounds us,
that every spirit knows,
Where love is openly shared and courage daily flows.
Sea Free we call you in
across veils and roads unexplored,
To lighten our burdens and lift up our hearts,
to open darkened doors…”
“A Song of Sea Free,” thought to be from 1647, author unknown.
