VP_008841 Verse 1Stormy 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, Tho' death be near, she knows no fear, While at her side is the one ever dear. Chorus 1Loudly 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! Verse 2What of the storm when the night is o'er? There is no trace or sign! Save where the wreakage hath 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, Now may the bell toll its warning in vain.
