VERSE 01: 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 the 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: Loudly the bell in the old tower rings,/ Bidding us listen to the warning it brings/ Sailor, take care! Sailor, take care! Danger is near thee, 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 02: What of the storm when the night is o'er? There is no trace or sign!/ Save where the wreckage 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.
