The U.S. Army Hymn (Complete Lyrics)

Mighty is our Army and mighty is our Lord.
We stand for peace and liberty, our histories record.
Each soldier is a fortress; united we defend
The right our fathers died for, eternal without end.

One nation, one Army;
One people strong and free;
Tho’ worshiping in different ways;
One God eternally.

The U.S. Air Force Hymn (Complete Lyrics)

Lord, guard and guide the ones who fly
Through the great spaces of the sky;
Be with them traversing the air
In darkening storms or sunshine fair.

The U.S. Navy Hymn (Complete Lyrics)

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!

The U.S. Marine Corps Hymn (Complete Lyrics)

Eternal Father, grant, we pray,
To all Marines, both night and day,
The courage, honor, strength, and skill
Their land to serve, thy law fulfill;
Be thou the shield forevermore
From every peril to the Corps.

The U.S. Coast Guard Hymn (Complete Lyrics)

Eternal Father, Lord of Hosts,
Watch o’er the ones who guard our coasts.
Protect them from the raging seas
And give them light and life and peace.
Grant them from thy great throne above
The shield and shelter of thy love.


NOTE: Last three are verses 1, 5 an 10 of “Eternal Father, Strong to Save”
