ASLEEP IN THE DEEP
 
div
 
Stormy the night and the waves roll high
Bravely the ship doth ride
Hark while the lighthouse bell's solemn cry
Rings o'er the sullen tide
There on the deck see two lovers stand
Heart to heart beating and hand in hand
Though death be near, she knows no fear
While at her side is one of all most dear.

Chorus: Loudly the bell in the old tower rings
Bidding us list to the warning it brings
Sailor take care, sailor take care
Danger is near thee, beware, beware.
Beware, beware.
Many brave hearts are asleep in the deep
So beware, beware.
Many brave hearts are asleep in the deep
So beware, beware.


What of the storm when the night is o'er
There is no trace or sign
Save where the wreckage has strewn the shore
Peaceful the sun doth shine
But when the wild raging storm did cease
Under the billows two hearts found peace
No more to part, no more of pain
The bell may now toll its warning in vain.

Chorus:
