On This Wondrous Sea is a rollicking choral song based off of the famous poem by Emily Dickinson. Incorporating nautical sounds, the piece is upbeat and fun to sing. Suitable for advanced high school choirs and up.


On this wondrous sea
Sailing silently
Ho! Pilot, ho!
Knowest thou the shore
Where no breakers roar
Where the storm is o’er?

In the peaceful west
Many the sails at rest
The anchors fast
Thither I pilot thee
Land Ho! Eternity!
Ashore at last!
