THE SAILORS HYMN
Thou art thinking of thy child, Thinking of life's cheerless wild— Heaven, my Father, 'will direct me, When thine arm cannot protect me! Then look not so sad to-day, Duty beckons me away—
Farewell!
Mother, weep not, though I roam From my early, happy home! Though thou miss my step at eve, Do not in my absence grieve; For, my Mother, I am blest, On another arm I rest! Ah ! thy sweet, maternal heart Swells, and breaks as I depart—
Farewell!
THE SAILOR'S HYMN.
Rudely dash the waves on high, Toward the darkly frowning sky; ' Vengeful tempests, full of wrath, Gather o'er our ocean path.
Such is life—a troubled way, Dark with clouds of dashing spray; Thus do passion's billows roll Fiercely o'er the human soul.
