Lyrics of “Lord, Guard and Guide,” also known as the“United States Air Force Hymn.” The text is derived from a prayer by poet Mary C.D. Hamilton. She also used the same text in “A Hymn for Aviators,” a musical setting by English composer Henry Baker (1852). Hamilton wrote her prayer in 1915 during World War I with the transcript first appearing in the “American Student Hymnal” of 1928 set to Mozart’s “Dona Nobis Pacem.” Years later during World War II, the initial verse of the prayer was adapted for use in “The Navy Hymn” as a tribute to naval aviators. This arrangement of the Air Force Hymn starts out in the string friendly key of G concert and modulates to A concert. Parts included are: Full Score, Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Bassoon, Horn in F, 1st Violin, 2nd Violin, Viola, Cello, Double Bass. Performance time is approx. 2 minutes 5 seconds.
