Eternal Father, strong to save,
Whose arm hath bound the restless wave Who bidd’st 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, the Lord of hill and plain
o’er which our traffic runs amain By mountain pass or valley low,
wherever, Lord, Thy brethren 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 family 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 praise from air and land and sea!
