From homes of quiet peace

Full Text

1. From homes of quiet peace
We lift up hands of prayer,
And those Thou gavest us to love
Commend, Lord, to Thy care.

2. In perils of the sea
Watch o’er them day by day;
In perils of the common life
Be Thou their Strength and Stay.

3. Let Thine almighty arm
Be their defense and shield;
And whosoever’s cause is Thine
To them the victory yield.
