it looks like it's struggling to be "seraphim". Check the crossing letters.

@MontereyJack,
the crossing answers are

70a - range of influence - ??ach - I have reach (This makes R the fourth letter of 49d)

49d - naval barrages - ??o?d?ides - I have floodtides (This gives the F of 49d

Thanks

naval barrages are most likely broadsides (dates to the days of sailing ships, when all the cannons pointed out of the sides of ships).

ok, now it looks like we're going for cherubim.

when I was a kid we sang this Christmas carol about cherubim and seraphim (-im is the Hebrew plural marker), but i haven't heard anyone sing it in decades:

Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning our song shall rise to Thee;
Holy, holy, holy, merciful and mighty!
God in three Persons, blessèd Trinity!

Holy, holy, holy! All the saints adore Thee,
Casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;
Cherubim and seraphim falling down before Thee,
Who was, and is, and evermore shall be.

Holy, holy, holy! though the darkness hide Thee,
Though the eye of sinful man Thy glory may not see;
Only Thou art holy; there is none beside Thee,
Perfect in power, in love, and purity.

Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
All Thy works shall praise Thy Name, in earth, and sky, and sea;
Holy, holy, holy; merciful and mighty!
God in three Persons, blessèd Trinity!
