But leave, oh leave the light of Hope behind!
What though my winged hours of bliss have been
Like angel visits, few and far between. 1

    Another’s sword has laid him low,
  Another’s and another’s;
And every hand that dealt the blow—

    Shall victor exult, or in death be laid low,
With his back to the field and his feet to the foe,
And leaving in battle no blot on his name,
Look proudly to heaven from the death-bed of fame.

    Ye mariners of England,
That guard our native seas;
Whose flag has braved, a thousand years,
The battle and the breeze!
          Ye Mariners of England.

No towers along the steep;
Her march is o’er the mountain waves,
Her home is on the deep.
          Ye Mariners of England.
