Wealth and possessions, this is a gift from God. The ability to enjoy wealth and possessions, to accept our lot and plot, to be happy in our toil—this too is a gift from God. (Ecclesiastes 5:19)
Lord, thanks fer the station aboard ship ya ‘ave assigned me. Thanks fer the good things that fall inter my lap without any hard effort on my part. Thanks fer the work joy I find in the lift and fall of this vessel, the laughter of the crew after a good day’s work, fer how the tasks assigned ter me strengthen my muscles and grow gray matter. Not all treasures be found in a chest stowed under a bunk. You alone bring out heaven’s riches fer those who fear ya.
Fer this I give ya praise and thanks.
