Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 34
PULL FOR THE SHORE.
Copyright, 1874, by John Church & Co.
Light in the darkness, sailor, day is at hand!
See, o'er the foaming billows, fair heaven's land,
Drear was the voyage, sailor, now almost o'er;
Safe within the life-boat, sailor, pull for the shore.
Pull for the shore, sailor, pull for the shore!
Heed not the rolling waves, but bend to the oar;
Safe in the life-boat, sailor, cling to self no more,
Leave the poor old stranded wreck and pull for the shore.
Trust in the life-boat, sailor, all else will fail;
stronger the surges dash, and fiercer the gale; .
Heed not the stormy winds, though loudly they roar,
Watch the "Bright Morning Star," and pull for the shore.- Chorus.
Bright gleams the morning, sailor, uplift the eye;
Clouds and darkness disappearing, glory is nigh!
Safe in the life-boat, sailor, sing evermore,
"Glory, glory, hallelujah!"-Pull for the shore.- Chorus.
