The Lyrics to the Navy Hymn also known as Eternal Father by John B. Dykes:

Eternal Father strong to save Whose arm hath bound the restless wave Who
bidd'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!

O Christ! Whose voice the waters heard And hushed their raging at Thy word Who walked'st on the foaming deep And calm amidst its rage didst sleep Oh hear us when we cry to Thee For those in peril on the sea!

Most Holy Spirit Who didst brood Upon the chaos dark and rude And bid its angry tumult cease And give for wild confusion peace Oh 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 Thus evermore shall rise to Thee Glad hymns of praise from land and sea
