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 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: Loudly the bell in the old tower rings,/Bidding us list to the warning it bring./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!
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 tolls its warning in vain.
