1  O mighty God, Creator, King,
Who rulest over sea and land,
And dost the ocean deeps sustain
Within the hollow of Thine hand;
O hear us as we cry to Thee
For those who traverse land or sea,
That they may now and ever be
Safe in Thy holy keeping.

2  And Thou who cam'st on earth to breathe
The breath of peace o'er heath and hill,
Didst walk upon the angry wave,
And bid the troubled sea, "Be still;"
O hear us as we cry to Thee
For those who traverse land or sea,
That they may now and ever be
Safe in Thy holy keeping.

3  Wherever danger threatens, then,
O Holy Spirit, be Thou there,
And breathe into each trembling heart
The will and power of fervent prayer
That we and all who cry to Thee
With those who traverse land or sea,
Both now and evermore may be
Safe in Thy holy keeping.
