This card, a reminder of of the uncertainly of life and the need to get right with God, refers to the sinking of the luxury liner Titanic in the northern Atlantic Ocean on April 15, 1912. According to legend, the ship's band bravely played to help keep the passengers calm and the last song they played was the hymn, "Nearer My God to Thee.". The story was so well known that no explanatory text was needed.
