Description

A strong, joyous setting of the hymn Melita for SATB with organ. Also available for two-part (or unison) choir.

Eternal Father, strong to save,
Whose arm hath bound the restless wave,
Who bids 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 upon the foaming deep,
And calm amidst its rage did sleep;
Oh, hear us when we cry to Thee,
For those in peril on the sea!

O Trinity of love and power!
Thy children shield in danger’s hour;
From rock and tempest, fire and foe,
Protect them wheresoever we go;
Thus evermore shall rise to Thee
Glad hymns of praise from land and sea.
