"LORD, GUARD AND GUIDE THE MEN WHO FLY"

#1 Lord, guard and guide the men who fly
through the great spaces of the sky.
Be with them traversing the air in
darkening storms or sunshine fair.

#2 You who sport with grandeur might
the balanced birds in all their
flight, lord of the temperate winds,
be near, that, have you, they
know no fear.

#3 Control their minds with instinct
fit when – e’er, adventuring,
they quit the firm security of land;
grant steadfast, and skillful hand.

#4 Aloft in solitudes of space,
upholding them with your
saving grace. Oh God, protect the
men who fly through lonely ways
beneath the sky.

Amen.
