1 Almighty Father, hear our cry,
As o'er the trackless deep we roam;
Be Thou our haven always nigh,
On homeless waters, Thou our home.
2 O Jesus, Saviour, at Whose voice
The tempest sunk to perfect rest,
Bid Thou the fearful heart rejoice,
And cleanse and calm the trouble breast.
3 O Holy Ghost, beneath Whose power
The ocean woke to life and light,
Command Thy blessing in this hour,
Thy fostering warmth, Thy quickening might.
4 Great God of our salvation, Thee
We love, we worship, we adore;
Our refuge on times's changeful sea,
Our joy on heaven's eternal shore.
