Words and Music by M. J. Cavanagh.

Bound homeward, our good ship speeds over the wave
Each snowy sail spread to the breeze;
Our hearts are as light as the favoring gale
That bears us away o'er the seas.
To loved ones, who've waited our coming by day,
And prayed for the sailor at night;
The fears of the anxious shall soon fade away,
"With home and the harbor in sight.

Two sweet eyes of blue, and a heart as true
As the stars in the heavens above,
Awaits there for Jack, to welcome him back
To that haven of joy and love.

Safe in the harbor at last,
Safe with the joy of my heart;
Her loving embrace will sorrow efface,
Ah, never again to part.
Safe from the tempest and wave,
The gates of our haven are past,
And bright lights ashore now greet us no more,
We're safe in the harbor at last;
We're safe in the harbor, we're safe in the harbor.
We're safe in the harbor at last.

In a little white cottage high up on the craigs
A beacon of love ever burns;
And two loving eyes gazes out o'er the main,
She waits for her sailor's return.
Thro' death and darkness of night, when the storm
Rages loud in its fury and might,
For him who is out on the treacherous wave
The lamp at the window burns bright.-Ref. & Cho
