Prayer: Eternal Father, strong to save, Whose arm hath bound the restless wave, Who bid'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! Lord Jesus, grant to us, we pray, For Soldiers and Marines, this day, The courage, honor, strength, and skill Their land to serve, thy law fulfill; Oh, hear us when we beg Thy hand, Protect our troops upon the land, O Holy Spirit, guard and guide, the men who fly up in the sky. Be with them always in the air, In darkening storms or sunlight fair; Oh, hear us when we lift our prayer, For those in peril in the air! 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 evermore shall rise to Thee Glad hymns of praise from land and sea.
