Eternal Father, strong to save,
Whose arm does bind the restless wave,
Who bids 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 Savior, whose almighty word
The winds and waves submissive heard,
Who walked upon the foaming deep,
And calm amid the rage did sleep;
O hear us when we cry to Thee
For those in peril on the sea.

O Holy Spirit, who did brood
Upon the waters dark and rude,
And bid their angry tumult cease,
And give for wild confusion peace;
O hear us when we cry to Thee
For those in peril on the sea.

O Trinity of love and pow'r,
Your children shield in danger's hour;
From rock and tempest, firs, and foe,
Protect them wheresoe'er they go;
Thus, evermore shall rise to Thee
Glad hymns of praise from land and sea.

####.... Lyrics written in 1860 by William Whiting [1825-1878] of Kensington, England / Music written in 1861 by John Bacchus Dykes [1823-1876] of Hull, England ....####

The video below features the closing recessional for the Cougar Helicopters memorial service at St John's Basilica, NL, on March 18, 2009. The helicopter, transporting offshore oil workers, crashed days earlier taking 17 lives.

From Wikipedia:
Cougar Helicopters Flight 91 (also known as Flight 491) ditched on 12 March 2009 off the coast of Newfoundland 55 kilometres (34 mi) east-southeast of St John's en route to the SeaRose FPSO (Floating Production, Storage and Offloading vessel) located in the White Rose oil and gas field, approximately 350 kilometres (217 mi) east-southeast off the coast of Newfoundland in the North Atlantic Ocean. Only one of the eighteen people aboard survived the sinking, although another managed to exit the aircraft.
