1.  O God, Creator, in whose hand

The rolling planets lie,

Give skill to those who now command

The ships that brave the sky.

2.  Strong Spirit, burning with mankind

On missions high to dare,

Safe pilot all who seek to find

Their haven thro’ the air.

3.  Calm Christ, courageous in Thy quest,

Whose light led men afar,

Illume their pathways with Thy blest

And peaceful natal star.

4.  Enfolding Life, bear on Thy wing

Thro’ storm and dark and sun,

The men in air who closer bring

The nations into one.
