[The hymn described by the author is also known as ‘Eternal father, Strong to Save’, traditionally associated with seafarers]


Funerals whenever possible were held on Saturdays so that as many men as possible could attend […] When a fisherman from the village was drowned the choir was asked to attend. The church was full to overflowing. Men stood in the aisle and in the porch. The singing was very moving and when the hymn “For those in peril on the sea” was sung many men shed tears, there were few dry eyes. It was a memorable sight which I shall never forget and every time I hear the hymn I see so clearly Woolaston church, filled to overflowing and I can hear the preponderence [sic] of men’s voices filling the air with pathos.
