Transcription

A thought for the quiet hour
by Patience Strong

Lord. hold them in thy mighty hand
Above the ocean and the land.
Like wings of eagles mounting high
Along the pathways of the sky.

Immortal is the name they bear.
And high the honour that they share.
Until a thousand year have rolled
Their deeds of valour shall be told.
In dark of night and light of day.
God speed and bless them on their way.
And homeware safely guide each one
With glory gained and duty done.
