"The Wind Is Low" as written by and Samuel Ervin Beam....
You you strong like a
Me keeping every word
You doubt every single word
We countin' the words
We sail in a small boat
Just when the wind is low

You see from the sparrow's height
Me seeking you every night
You sailing towards the sun

We sailing in a small boat
Just when the wind is low

We sailing in the smallest boat
Sailing just when the wind is low

    General CommentCorrect lyric :

    You, strong as a virgin birth
    Me, keeping your every word
    Two dots where a single was
    Three, counting the little one

    We sail in the smallest boat
    Sleep just when the wind is low

    You see from the sparrow's height
    Me, seeking you every night
    Two, sailing towards the sun
    Three, counting the little one

    My OpinionI'm fairly sure this is about a car crash (or boat crash?).... the narrator, might have been the driver. He's speaking to jesus specifically... I'm not sure he's asking for forgiveness for the past in his life well as for his wife and child.

    The last few lines indicate they've died, and they're going to God. Supposedly.
