Who bidd’st the mighty ocean deepIts own appointed limits keep:O hear us when we cry to thee for those in peril on the sea.
The “Navy Hymn” is Eternal Father, Strong to Save. The original words were written as a poem in 1860 by William Whiting of Winchester, England, for a student who was about to sail for the United States. The melody, published in 1861, was composed by fellow Englishman, Rev. John Bacchus Dykes, an Episcopalian clergyman.
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!
just so ya know… ~redjeep
Title: Bangkok Pool Party on a Pickup Truck (aka A short trip to my hometown)
Description: A satirical collage that pokes fun in a tongue-in-cheek way at foreigners celebrating Songkran (Thai New Year) festival in Bangkok.
Bio: Gloria Supatra Bhargava is a collage artist based in Bangkok. In particular, she likes to portray the iconoclastic dystopia of 1950s American Hollywood life against the backdrop of the newly-emerging super-societies of the future and the wider cosmos. Her works are often nihilistic, surreal, and with just the right touch of satire.
