Navy Hymn - Eternal Father Strong to Save
Eternal Father Strong to Save
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.
Lord, guard and guide the men who fly
Through the great spaces of the sky.
Be with them traversing the air
In dark'ning storms and sunlight fair.
O, hear us when we lift our prayer
For those in peril in the air.
[Eternal Father, grant, we pray
To all Marines, both night and day,
The courage, honor, strength, and skill
Their land to serve, thy law fulfill.
Be thou the shield forevermore
From every peril to the Corps.]
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.
Thus ever let there rise to thee
Glad hymns of praise from land and sea.
