Lord, Guard and Guide the Men Who Fly 149
For Airmen
Mary C. D. Hamilton, 1915 Henry Baker, 1852
  1. Lord,guard and guide the men who fly
    Thro' the great spaces of the sky;
    Be with them traversing the air
    In darkening storms or sunshine fair.
  2. Thou who doth keep with tender might
    The balanced birds in all their flight,
    Thou of the tempered winds, be near,
    That, having thee, they know no fear.
  3. Control their minds with instinct fit
    What time, adventuring, they quit
    The firm security of land;
    Grant steadfast eye and skillful hand.
  4. Aloft in solitudes of space,
    Uphold them with thy saving grace.
    O God,protect the men that fly
    Thro'lonely ways beneath the sky. Amen.
