Words and Music by Frank Howard.

She stood alone on the shore,
Her eyes grew dim with tears
As she kissed her hand to me,
Perhaps the last for years;
She watched the sails unfurl,
Then breathed her vows a-new;
While faintly I could hear
The sweet words "I'll be true!"
The winds bring out to sea
This song from her to me:

I'll await ray love, I'll await my love,
And I'll be as true as the stars above;
I'll await my love, I'll await my love,
I'll await my sailor boy.

She stood alone on the shore
With heavy heart so sad,
While her son] went out in prayer
For her dear sailor lad;
With trembling voice she cried,
Oh, God! I pray to thee,
To shield my darling boy
From storm and wreck at sea!
The winds bring out to sea
This song from her to me:-Chorus.
