A friend sent us this witty bit of humor from the newsletter of Grace Lutheran Church in Seguin (near San Antonio), Texas.

Most people are familiar with the traditional Navy hymn, Eternal Father, Strong to Save.” The song speaks of God’s arm binding the restless wave. Along those lines, why not consider other hymns from the Lutheran worship for other vocations, like the following:

For airplane pilots: “From Heav’n Above to Earth I Come”

For typists: “Oh, Wondrous Type! Oh, Vision Fair”

For miners: “From Depths of Woe I Cry to You”

For dentists: “Crown Him With Many Crowns”

For road crews: “Prepare the Royal Highway”

For gardeners: “Lo, How a Rose Is Growing”

For judges and attorneys: “In the Hour of Trial”

For farmers: “When Seed Falls on Good Soil”

For census takers: “All People That on Earth Do Dwell”

For astronomers: “Brightest and Best of the Stars of the Morning”

We thought of a few more from the Worship and Service Hymnal:

For TV repairmen: “Channels Only”

For artists: “Draw Me Nearer”

For zookeepers: “All Creatures of our God and King”

For optometrists: “Christian, Dost Thou See Them?”

For weather forecasters: “From Every Stormy Wind That Blows” or “Will There Be Any Stars”

For mathematicians: “Ten Thousand Times Ten Thousand”
