Eternal Father, Strong to save,
Whose arm hath bound the restless wave,
Who bid'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.
Eternal Father, grant, we pray
To all Marines, both night and day,
The courage, honor, strength, and skill
Thy land to serve, thy law fulfill;
Be thou the shield forevermore
From every peril to the Corps.
