The hymnal is called Worship His Majesty, and is @1987 the Gaither Music Company, of Alexandria, IN. The verses are as follows:   Eternal Father, strong to save, Whose arm hath bound the restless wave, Who bids the mighty ocean deep, It's own appointed limits keep O hear us when we cry to Thee for those in peril on the sea.   O Christ, the Lord of hill and plain O'er which our traffic runs a main By mountain pass or valley low: Wherever, Lord, our brethren go, Protect them by Thy guarding hand From every peril on the land   O Spirit whom the Father sent To spread abroad the firmament: O wind of heaven, by Thy might, Save all who dare the eagle's flight, And keep them by Thy watchful caare From every peril in the air.   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 praise from air and land and sea.   There you have it.   Best,   Nathan
