Lyrics

Oh dry that tear and hush that sigh
For sighs and tears are vain
Let hope beam on the fare well hour
And soothe our parting pain
Fear will not let me cherish Hope
For Memry's tearful strain
Now tells of many parting friends who never met again
Propitious be the gale that speeds thy frail bark o'er the sea
And may no adverse wind retard Thy blest return to me
And may no adverse wind retard Thy blest return to me


The dazzling orb of day is gone now comes the gloom of night
A few short hours and day's return again will bless thy sight
Behold yon star whose constant rays illume the pathless sea
As that star to the mariner so hope shall be to me
Propitious be the gale that speeds thy frail bark o'er the sea
And may no adverse wind retard Thy blest return to me
And may no adverse wind retard Thy blest return to me
