1 From homes of quiet peace
We lift up hands of prayer,
And those Thou gavest us to love
Commend, Lord, to Thy care.

2 In perils of the sea
Watch o'er them day by day;
In perils of the battlefield
Be Thou their strength and stay.

3 Be with them when they fight,
Be with them if they fall;
For life and death alike are Thine,
And Thou art all in all.

4 Let Thine Almighty Arm
Be their defence and shield;
And whosesoever cause is Thine
To them the Victory yield.
