May the eternal light shine upon them, O Lord;
Over eight hundred people perished in a shipwreck in the northern Baltic Sea.
Have mercy, O Lord.
There were about 1000 passengers on board. 910 people lost their lives in the wreck of the Estonia; 139 were saved.
They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters;
For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof.
Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses.
