SPEED ON, MY BARK
Copyright, 1891, by Frank Harding.
Words by Chas. Kenna. Music by J. J. Nolan.

Speed on, my bark, o'er the snowy-capped waves of the sea,
Speed on to her who is all the world to me;
Life will be brighter with my love by my side,
Speed o'er the snowy-capped waves of the sea to her who will be my bride.

When the dark night-shadows o'er the earth fall.
Sweet thoughts of her will my mind e'er recall,
And, in those dear dreams of happiness, I,
As if on the wings of a dove, to her fly.

Speed on, my bark, o'er the snowy-capped waves of the sea,
Speed on to her who is all the world to me;
Life will be brighter with my love at my side,
Speed o'er the snowy-capped waves of the sea to her who will be my bride.

In a cottage by the sea dwells my life's bright light,
And she fondly waits and watches for my coming day and night;
Oh! how the hours seem to slowly roll away,
Will he ne'er return to me? I, in fancy, hear her say.
