Celtic Thunder

Celtic Thunder - Home From The Sea

rate me

Home, home, home from the sea

Angels of mercy, answer our plea

And carry us home, home, home from the sea

Carry us safely home from the sea.

On a cold winters night

With a storm at its height

The lifeboat answered the call.

They pitched and they tossed

Till we thought they were lost

As we watched from the harbor wall.

Though the night was pitch black,

There was no turning back,

For someone was waiting out there,

But each volunteer

Had to live with his fear

As they joined in a silent prayer.

As they battled their way

Past the mouth of the bay,

It was blowing like never before.

As they gallantly fought,

Every one of them thought

Of loved ones back on the shore.

Then a flicker of light

And they knew they were right.

There she was on the crest of a wave.

She's an old fishing boat

And she's barely afloat.

Please God, there are souls we can save.

And back in the town

In a street that runs down

To the sea and the harbor wall,

They'd gathered in pairs

At the foot of the stairs

To wait or the radio call.

And just before dawn

When all hope had gone

Came a hush and a faraway sound.

'Twas the coxswain he roared

All survivors on board

Thank God and we're homeward bound.
