Thank you for your life of service, your example of courage and honor, and your undying love of America.
ETERNAL FATHER, STRONG TO SAVE,
WHOSE ARM HATH BOUND THE RESTLESS WAVE,
WHO BIDD’ST THE MIGHTY OCEAN DEEP
ITS OWN APPOINTED LIMITS KEEP.
OH, HEAR US WHEN WE CRY TO THEE,
FOR THOSE IN PERIL ON THE SEA.
