ANONYMOUS - For Those in Peril on the Sea


For Those in Peril on the Sea

Eternal Father, strong to save,

Whose arm doth bind 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!

O Saviour, Whose almighty word

The winds and waves submissive heard,

Who walkedst on the foaming deep,

And calm amid its rage didst sleep:

O hear us when we cry to Thee

For those in peril on the sea!

O Sacred Spirit, who didst brood

Upon the chaos dark and rude,

Who bad’st its angry tumult cease,

And gavest light, and life, and peace:

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;

From rock and tempest, fire and foe,

Protect them wheresoe’er they go;

And ever let there rise to Thee

Glad hymns of praise from land and sea.
