Evil Good I am cast upon a horrible,
desolate island, void of all
hope of recovery. But I am alive; and not
drowned,as all my ship's
company were. I am singled out and
separated, as it were, from
all the world, to be misera-
able. Bur I'm singled out too
from all the ship's crew,
to be separated from
death; and He that mirac-
ulously saved me from
death, can deliver me
from this condition.
