The Deep Blue Sea.

28

When the breeze is softly singing,
Over the deep blue sea,
And the vesper bell is ringing,
I'll steal away to thee,
From a world whose iron chain,
Sits heavy on my soul,
From many a weary pain
Beyond my weak control.
Oh! when the breeze is singing,
Over the deep blue sea,
And the vesper bell is ringing,
I'll come my love to thee.

Away to the shining waters,
Rippling over the land,
Away to the rocks of Coral,
Along the moonlit sand,
The glow of health will meet us,
On the sweet ev'ning air
The sparkling waves will greet us,
With a murm'ring welcome there,
Oh! when the breeze is singing.
Over the deep blue sea,
And the vesper bell is ringing,
I'll come my love to thee.
