1  The bright blue waves are dancing
Beneath the smiling sky;
And o'er the waters glancing,
The seabirds soaring high!
Oh! mark the billows leaping,
To greet the smiling shore,
Then backward wildly sweeping,
Unto the main once more!
But whether kissed by sunbeams,
Or lashed by stormy wind;
Still on the free, the foaming sea,
A joyous home we find!

2  The dark wild waves are roaring
Beneath the frowning sky;
And o'er the waters roaring,
The storm-king floats on high!
Oh! mark the billows leaping,
In thunder on the shore,
Then backward wildly sweeping,
With hoarse and angry roar!
But whether kissed by sunbeams,
Or lashed by stormy wind;
Still on the free, the foaming sea,
A joyous home we find!
