A salute to a sailor president from the Navy.



  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 Christ! Whose voice the waters heard
And hushed their raging at Thy word,
Who walked’st on the foaming deep,
And calm amidst its rage didst sleep;
Oh, hear us when we cry to Thee,
For those in peril on the sea!

Most Holy Spirit! Who didst brood
Upon the chaos dark and rude,
And bid its angry tumult cease,
And give, for wild confusion, peace;
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.

  Remember to consider only Christ in the person of the poor.  Serve them always as you would serve Christ himself.  


  1. I had today off.
    I couldn’t pull myself away from PBS’s coverage of the uninterrupted funeral ceremony. The send off was beautiful. George W’s eulogy was a perfect balance to the other strong heartfelt sentiments.
    His love for his dad shown through. Hard not to shed a tear.
    God bless them all.

  2. Heard most of the funeral Mass, Episcopal style, on the radio. Very moving. George W. did his father proud. President Bush was a war hero, patriot and man of great faith. Thankfully God answered his prayers for rescue while he was
    sick and floating in the Pacific. Bush knew well the horrific fate of POW fliers captured by the pagan Japanese.
    Eternal Father…have a hard time not shedding a tear when hearing that hymn.
