Written, Composed and Sung by the American Quartette.

Four life-boat men are we, and we plough the raging sea,
When the storms they are raging wild and high,
Along the rocky coast you'll find us at our post,
Ever ready when there's dinger nigh,
We hear the captain's call, Man the life-boat one and all,
There's a ship in distress heaving too,
And nobly side by side we launch upon the tide.
And away goes the life-boat crew.

Life-boat, ahoy! ahoy! Whene'er we hear that cry,
Away we go thro' storm and danger, too,
And as the wreck we near, the sailors give three cheers,
When they see that gallant life-boat crew.

Now steady, every man, we'll save them if we can,
And a rope from her side Is quickly thrown;
God-bless our efforts crown, as the last on deck comes down,
Then away thro' the storm we go.
We reach the shore at last, and all life's dangers past,
And with hearts full of glee we pull on shore.
And may we never find our gallant men behind,
Our noble-hearted life-bout crew.-Chorus.
