Prayer for Captain Phillips

Eternal Father, strong to save
Whose arm hath bound the restless wave
Who bidst the mighty ocean deep
Its own appointed limits keep
O, hear us when we cry to thee
For those in peril on the sea
O, Trinity of love and power
Our brethern shield in danger's hour
From rock and tempest, fire and FOE
Protect them whereso'er they go
Thus evermore shall rise to Thee
Glad praise from air, from land and sea

(from the Navy Hymn)
