517. Almighty Father, Strong to Save

1 Almighty Father, strong to save,
Whose arm has bound the restless wave,
Who bids the mighty ocean deep
Its own appointed limits keep:
Oh, hear our earnest, humble plea
For those in peril on the sea.

4 O Trinity of love and pow'r,
Your people shield in danger's hour;
From rock and tempest, fire and foe,
Protect them all where'er they go;
Thus ever more to you shall be
Glad praise from air and land and sea.
