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, O hear us when we cry to thee For those in peril on the sea! Eternal Father, guard our dead, For whom their comrades bow their heads. Receive them now their labor cease, And grant them your Eternal peace. Oh hear us as we lift our prayer, And keep them in your loving care. And when at length her course is run, Her work for home and country done, Of all the souls that in her sailed Let not one life in thee have failed; But hear from heaven or sailor’s cry, And grant eternal life on high!
