Song Lyrics

Eternal Father, strong to save
Whose arm hath bound the restless wave
Who biddest the mighty ocean deep
Its own appointed limits keep
Oh, hear us when we cry to Thee
For those in peril on the sea!

O Christ! Whose voice the waters heard
And hushed their raging at Thy Word
Who walked on the foaming deep
And calm amidst its rage didst sleep
Oh, hear us when we cry to Thee
For those in peril on the sea!

O Trinity of love and power!
Our family shield in danger's hour
From rock and tempest, fire and foe
Protect us wheresoever we go
Thus evermore shall rise to Thee
Glad hymns of praise from land and sea

Alternate verses:
Most Holy Spirit! Who didst brood
Upon the chaos dark and rude
And bid its angry tumult cease
And give, for wild confusion, peace
Oh, hear us when we cry to Thee
For those in peril on the sea!

Lord, guard and guide the men who fly
Though the great spaces in the sky
Be with them always in the air
In darkening storms or sunlight fair
Oh, hear us when we lift our prayer
For those in peril in the air!

Aloft in solitudes of space
Uphold them with Thy saving grace
Thou Who supports with tender might
The balanced birds in all their flight
Lord, if the tempered winds be near
That, having Thee, they know no fear
