Commonly known as “The Mariners Hymn” and often referred to in the United States as “The Naval Hymn”, the text of “Eternal Father, Strong To Save” was written in the form of an ode by an English schoolmaster and clergyman of the Church of England, the* Rev. William Whiting (1825-1878), who had survived a furious storm in the Mediterranean in 1860.The Rev.JohnDykes (1823-1876), another clergyman, adapted the words to the tune known as *"Melita".There are several other verses and variants thereof too numerous to list here, but readily available online.The background picture, taken by my assistant, DJ, is a seascape on the Isle of Lewis" at Butt of Lewis (Rubhanais).
The picture is available without the text and frame in my *Beaches and Seascapes
portfolio. Scroll down to hear it sung by the Festival Choir and Hosanna Chorus.
