Eternal Father, strong to save,
Whose arm doth bind 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.

The Church Penant
From the Helena 1949 Cruise Book

Peace, solemnity . . . . the beauty of the setting sun, the thoughts of home and our loved ones . . .
thanks to Him who hath wrought the many blessings . . . . all part of a day's end at sea.
