Lyrics

Eternal Father, Strong to Save

(The Navy Hymn)

 

Arranged and played by Ken Williams

Words: William Whiting

Music: John Dykes

 

Eternal Father, strong to save,

Whose arm hath bound the restless wave,

Who bidd'st the might 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 thier 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,

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 ruse,

And bid its angry tumlut 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 brethern shield in danger's hour;

From rock and tempest, fire and foe, 

Protect them wheresoe'er they go;

Thus evermore shall rise to Thee

Glad hymns of praise from land and sea.
