Shipmates On Eternal Deployment

Final Salute! (mp3)

Navy Hymn (wav)

Eternal Father, strong to save, Whose arm hath bound the restless wave,
Who bidd'st the mighty ocean deep Its own appointed limits keep,
O hear us when we cry to thee For those in peril on the sea!

Lord, guard and guide the men who fly Through the great spaces in the sky.
Be with them always in the air, In darkening storms or sunlight fair.
O hear us when we lift our prayer For those in peril in the air!

Eternal Father, grant, we pray, To all Marines, both night and day,
The courage, honor, strength, and skill Their Land to serve, thy law fulfill;
Be thou the shield forevermore From every peril to the Corps!
