1  A gallant ship her silent way is taking,
Far o'er the stormy deep,
And for her sake some tender hearts are aching,
And some bright eyes still weep!
And O, how fond the parting words of sorrow,
Poured from the heart's full store,
What tender yearnings for that bright tomorrow,
When partings are no more!
A gallant ship her silent way is taking,
Far o'er the stormy deep,
And for her sake some tender hearts are aching,
And some bright eyes still weep!

2  The homebound ship her gladsome way is taking,
Across the Indian deep,
The summer winds a merry music making,
While billows round her leap!
And O, how fond the joyous words of greeting,
Poured from the heart's full store,
When exiled long, attest again their meeting,
To part on earth no more,
To part on earth no more!
