A hymn for 'those in peril on the sea', a rich musical sentiment that features a gorgeous muted trumpet solo at its peak. Originally written in 1860, the tune was popularized by the Royal Navy. The hymn is regularly invoked by ship's chaplains and sung during services on ocean crossings. Dykes was a well-known composer of nearly three hundred hymn tunes, many of which are still in use today.
