Страница 41 - stablished its borders unto all eternity, That such as have no pleasure For to praise the Lord by measure, They may enter into galleons and serve Him on the sea. Sun, Wind, and Cloud shall fail not from the face of it, Stinging, ringing spindrift, nor the fulmar flying free; And the ships shall go abroad To the Glory of the Lord Who heard the silly sailor-folk and gave them back their sea!
Страница 40 - Loud sang the souls of the jolly, jolly mariners, Plucking at their harps, and they plucked unhandily: 'Our thumbs are rough and tarred, And the tune is something hard May we lift a Deepsea Chantey such as seamen use at sea?
Страница 40 - Fair is our lot — O goodly is our heritage ! (Humble ye, my people, and be fearful in your mirth ! ) For the Lord our God Most High He hath made the deep as dry, He hath smote for us a pathway to the ends of all the Earth...
