VP_009681 Verse 1She sat alone on the rockbound shore, While the boats went sailing out;... She hearkened there to the breakers roar, But her heart was brave and stout. To her lover true She had bid adieu As far o'er the wave he sped! "I will come back again to you my own, So weep not" her lover said. She lives in a dream,... She sees him sail afar,... A dream of delight and love, For he's her guiding star! No sorrow long dwells in her heart, 'Tis brightened by Hope's sunny beam; He's sailing home, Across the foam, In the fisher girls happy dream! Verse 2She wandered there, with a weary heart, While the clouds were dull and gray;... She saw the gleam of his sail depart E're the light had flown from day. Then the tempest broke, And the lightning's stroke It flashed o'er the billows deep; In her heart was her prayer her love to spare And ever more safely keep! She lives in a dream,... She sees him sail afar,... A dream of delight and love, For he's her guiding star! No sorrow long dwells in her heart, 'Tis brightened by Hope's sunny beam; He's sailing home, Across the foam, In the fisher girls happy dream! Verse 3One morn she came to that rockbound shore, And her tears were falling fast;... "Oh give him back! then she sighed once more, As she heard the threat'ning blast By her side then stood, In his oilskin hood The loved one to her so dear! "I have come back to you my own' he said, And kissed away every tear! She lives in a dream,... She sees him sail afar,... A dream of delight and love, For he's her guiding star! No sorrow long dwells in her heart, 'Tis brightened by Hope's sunny beam; He's sailing home, Across the foam, In the fisher girls happy dream!
