LordGod, we depend on you for life itself. We depend on seafarers for many of our daily needs. Watch over them, keep them from danger, befriend them in loneliness and bring them safely home to those they love. Amen

Almighty God, we give thanks for all those who work at sea. We acknowledge our need for the food and raw materials they transport. We recognise that they are sometimes in danger and their long absences often involve sacrifices in their family life. Help us to show our gratitude not only in our words, but also in our actions.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Romblon Chapter
We sailed the vast ocean through its high and low
Danced through ships motion from the stern to its bow
To provide goods and services to all consumers of the world
A seafarers sacrifice that to you is being unfold
Eat, work then sleep, the usual routine we do onboard
We sing, dance and laugh. The only happiness we can afford
Waiting for next port, taking chances to communicate with our family
With all the time, seeking guidance and protection from the Lord Almighty
When duty calls, we turn the day into night and the night into day
For how long? Nobody can say
We are on our own since we embark on day one
And hide the feeling of loneliness as much as we can
We eat what’s been cooked and no reason to be picky
We clean our cabin with no excuses for it to be messy
We washed our cloths after a hard day’s job
Self-medication with warm bath and ointments rub
Everyday is Monday with no chances of shore-leave for relaxation
Hoping for everything be back to normal after vaccination
For even though we are expected to be with our family during vacation
Most of the days are wasted because of these quarantine and hotel isolation
Seafaring career has never been easy and it’s getting bad
If we have enough savings and investments, quitting will be glad
But reality check, these are not applicable to the majority
Because most can’t say no to the needs of the extended family
Life’s challenges come and go, with us stronger than before
Determined to finish the contract with our family and God in our core
The world is changing but we keep on sailing. Stand proud for them to see
We are the unsung heroes, back liners and brave warriors of the sea
