|Lord, guard and guide the men who fly
Through the great spaces in the sky.
Be with them always in the air,
In darkening storms or sunlight fair;
Oh, hear us when we lift our prayer,
For those in peril in the air!
|Eternal Father, Strong to save,
Whose arm hath bound the restless wave,
Who bid'st the mighty Ocean deep
It's own appointed limits keep;
O hear us when we cry to thee,
for those in peril on the sea
|"There is no such thing as a bad day when there is a door knob on the inside."
Former Vietnam Prisoner-Of-War & A-4 Skyhawk Pilot, Paul E. Galanti.
