I sure do wish that I were free
To dive into the deepest sea
And join the creatures biding there
To splash around with extra care.
I’d find myself surrounded by
Many sea creatures where they lie
All types of mollusk, clam and shell
What kind of stories do they tell ?
Like worms and eels and sponges too
Their skeletons are strange to view
While beds of coral by the mile,
Enchanted visions bring a smile.
So many fish, all species known
A varied catch with much unshown
Oh how I wish that I could be
Another mermaid in the sea.
What special plan was in God’s mind
As men of earth did treasure find
In His vast world, deep water hid
Great miracles that our God did !
