ISLAND OF GRACE
(Sort Of*) By Alexandra Erin
Amazing grace! How sweet the sound,
the tale of a fateful trip!
I once was lost, but now am found
aboard this tiny ship.
‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
the skipper brave and sure.
How precious did that grace appear
for a three hour tour.
Through many dangers, toils, and snares
the tiny ship was tossed.
‘Tis grace that brought me safe thus far
or the Minnow would be lost.
