WRECKED AND SAVED.

The day was fair, the sun was bright,
Our ship so gaily dressed,
All hearts were bounding with delight.
Not one with fear oppressed;
The anchor weighed, each sail was spread
To catch the fresh'ning breeze,
And on our way we swiftly sped
Upon the boundless seas.

But soon a dreadful storm began,
The livid lightning flashed,
The troubled seas like mountains ran,
The troubled seas like mountains ran-
The troubled seas like mountains ran,
And loud the thunder crashed;
The raving waters swept the deck
And shivered ev'ry mast,
All sails were gone, the ship a wreck,
And downward sinking fast.

Our captain calm, serene his brow,
The fearful sentence gave:
"We're lost, no power can help us now.
The sea must be our grave."
E'en then we wept not in despair,
Tho' hope of life had flown,
But raised one voice in holy prayer
To heaven's benignant throne.

The last farewell, the last good-bye
We gave, for death seemed near,
When, oh, a sail! a ship comes nigh,
Thank God! thank God! thine aid is here!
Hurrah! we're saved, now homeward bound,
The ship speeds on a main,
Soon shall our joyous shout resound
In England once again-
Hurrah! we're saved, now homeward bound,
The ship speeds on the main,
Soon shall our joyous shout resound
In England once again.
