    The Washington Revels sing the song known to United States Navy men and women as the "Navy Hymn," at the 22nd Annual Blessing of the Fleet. The centuries-old ‘Blessing of the Fleet’ ritual is intended to safeguard crews and ships from the danger of the seas through a blessing given by a clergyman at the water’s edge. During the Navy Memorial’s ceremony, sailors from the US Navy’s Ceremonial Guard proceed across the outdoor plaza’s “Granite Sea” to pour water from the Seven Seas and Great Lakes into the surrounding fountains, “charging” them to life and ushering in the spring season.
