Lyrics:
1.  Eternal Father, strong to save,
    Whose arm has bound the restless wave,
    Who bade the mighty ocean deep
    Its own appointed limits keep:
    O hear us when we cry to Thee
    For those in peril on the sea.

2.  O Savior, whose almighty word
    The wind and waves submissive heard,
    Who walked upon the foaming deep,
    And calm amid its rage did sleep:
    O hear us when we cry to Thee
    For those in peril on the sea.

3.  O Holy Spirit, who did brood
    Upon the chaos wild and rude,
    And bade its angry tumult cease,
    And gave, for fierce confusion, peace:
    O hear us when we cry to Thee
    For those in peril on the sea.

4.  O Trinity of love and power,
    All travelers guard in danger's hour;
    From rock and tempest, fire and foe,
    Protect them wheresoe'er they go;
    Thus evermore shall rise to Thee
    Glad praise from air and land and sea.
