FOR THOSE AT SEA




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 walkest on the foaming deep,
And calm amidst its rage did sleep;
O 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;
O hear us when we cry to Thee 
For those in peril on the sea.


O Trinity of love and power,
Your brethren 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 hymns of praise from land and sea.


O Christ, the Lord of hill and plain
o'er which our traffic runs amain,
By mountain pass or valley low:
Wherever, Lord, our brethren go,
Protect them by Thy Guarding hand
from ev'ry 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 ev'ry peril in the air.


---Alternative verses---


Eternal Father, strong to save,
Whose arm doth bind 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 Holy Spirit, who did brood
Upon the waters dark and rude,
And bid their angry tumult cease,
And give for wild confusion peace;
O hear us when we cry to Thee 
For those in peril on the sea.


O Trinity of love and power,
Your children 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 hymns of praise from land and sea.
