Hymn/Song Information

Lord of the ocean hear our cry




Almighty Father, hear our cry,
As oer the trackless deep we roam;
Be Thou our haven always nigh,
On homeless waters Thou our home.


O Jesu, Savior, at Whose voice
The tempest sank to perfect rest,
Bid Thou the fearful heart rejoice,
And cleanse and calm
the troubled breast.


O Holy Ghost, beneath Whose power
The ocean woke to life and light,
Command Thy blessing in this hour,
Thy fostering warmth,
Thy quickening might.


Great God of our salvation, Thee
We love, we worship, we adore;
Our Refuge on times changeful sea,
Our Joy on Heavns eternal shore.


---Alternative verses---


Lord of the ocean hear our cry
As oer the trackless deep we roam;
Be Thou our haven always nigh,
On homeless waters Thou our home.
