The spirit of your fathers
Shall start from every wave ! For the deck it was their field of fame,
And ocean was their grave ; Where Blake and mighty Nelson fulj
Your manly hearts shall glow. As ye sweep through the deep,
While the stormy winds do blow ; While the battle rages loud and long.
And the storm}' winds do blow.
Britannia needs no bulwarks,
No towers along the steep ; Her march is o'er the mountain-waves,
Her home is on the deep. With thunders from her native oak
She quells the floods below.— As they roar on the shore,
When the stormy winds do blow ; When the battle rages loud and long,
And the stormy winds do blow.
The meteor flag of England
Shall yet terrific burn ; Till danger's troubled night depart,
And the star of peace return. Then, then, ye ocean-warriors!
Our song and feast shall flow To the fame of your name,
When the storm has ceased to blow ; When the fiery fight is heard no more,
And the storm has ceased to blow.
H. 4838.
