Veterans Day: Navy Hymn

One of my “fav 5’s” is the Navy Hymn (Eternal Father, Strong to Save) for all ye Sea Veterans:

Eternal Father, strong to save,
Whose arm has bound the restless wave,
Who bade the mighty ocean deep,
Its own appointed limits keep.

Oh, hear us when we cry to thee,
For those in peril on the sea.

  • William Whiting, 1860
