ETERNAL FATHER, STRONG TO SAVE

(The Navy Hymn)

  • Eternal Father, strong  to save,
  • Whose arm hath bound the restless wave,
  • Who bidd’st the mighty ocean deep
  • Its own appointed limits keep;
  • Oh, hear us when we cry to Thee,
  • For those in peril on the sea!
  • 0 Christ! Whose voice the waters heard
  • And hushed their raging at Thy word,
  • Who walked’st 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!
  • 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!
  • O Trinity of love and power!
  • Our brethren shield in danger’s hour;
  • From rock and termpest, fire and foe,
  • Protect them wheresoe’er they go;
  • Thus evermore shall rise to Thee
  • Glad hymns of praise from land and sea.
