138 SEA SONGS.
Our might's the might of freedom ; with her strength
we must be strong ; Woe to England and her sea-rule if she do to freedom wrong !
Woe—thrice woe, If no more the tameless life that has been her life so long,
She shall know !
Shall our sons draw slavish breath ? shall they live,
self-ruled, no more ? Shall our sails not whiten every sea—our screws not seek each shore ?
No; more free, Yet more free and mightier yet, on all seas for evermore We shall be.
