Eternal Father, strong to save

Whose arm hath bound for the restless wave

Who bidst the mighty ocean deep Its own appointed limits keep

Its own appointed limits keep

O hear us when we cry to Thee

For those in peril on the sea.

O trinity of love and power,

Our brethren shield in danger’s hour

Protect them where so w’er they go

From rock and tempest, fi re and foe,

Thus evermore shall rise to Thee

Glad hymn of praise from land and sea.
