The Navy Hymn - a patriotic moment

Would you like to enjoy a moment of patriotism? Then listen to the U. S. Naval Glee Club sing two of the verses of the Navy Hymn in front of the USS Arizona monument. Very nice.


Eternal Father, strong to save,
Whose arm hath bound the restless wave,
Who bidd'st the mighty ocean deep
Its own appointed limits keep;
Oh, hear us when we cry to Thee,
For those in peril on the sea!

O Trinity of love and power!
Our brethren shield in danger's hour;
From rock and tempest, fire and foe,
Protect them wheresoe'er they go;
Thus evermore shall rise to Thee
Glad hymns of praise from land and sea.
