Almighty Father strong to save




Almighty Father, strong to save
whose arm hath bound
the restless wave,
who bidd’st the mighty ocean deep
its own appointed limits keep;
O hear us when we cry to thee
for those in peril on the sea.


O Christ, the Lord of hill and plain
o’er which our traffic runs a main
by mountain pass or valley low;
wherever Lord, thy people go,
protect them by thy guarding hand
from every peril on the land.


O Spirit, whom the Father sent
to spread abroad the firmament;
O Wind of heaven, by thy might
save all who dare the eagle’s flight,
and keep them by thy watchful care
from every peril in the air.


O Trinity of love and power,
our people shield in danger’s hour;
from rock and tempest, fire and foe,
protect them where so e’er they go;
thus evermore shall rise to thee
glad praise from space,
air, land, and sea.
