Eternal Father, Strong to Save
Words: William Whiting, 1860
1. Eternal Father, strong to save, Whose arm hath bound the restless wave, Who biddest the mighty ocean deep Its own appointed limits keep; Oh, hear us when we cry to Thee, For those in peril on the sea!
2. O Christ, the Lord of hill and plain o'er which our traffic runs amain, By mountain pass or valley low: Wherever, Lord, our brethren go, Protect them by Thy Guarding hand from ev'ry peril on the land.
3. 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 ev'ry peril in the air.
