National Day of Prayer
A prayer for our soldiers. . . and most especially, for the families today who grieve. . . our debt of gratitude is unbounded.
Our brethren shield in danger’s hour;
From rock and tempest, fire and foe,
Protect them wheresoe’er they go;
Thus evermore shall rise to Thee
Glad hymns of praise from land and sea.
Eternal Father, Strong to Save, “The Navy Hymn,” Fourth Stanza
