w:F or Eng land, when wi th fav' ring gale, Our gal - - lant ship up chan - - nel steer'd; And scud ding un der ea - - sy sail, The high blue west - - ern land ap pear'd;   To heave the le ad the sea - man sp rung, And to - the pi - lot cheer - ly sung. "By the deep nine! "By the deep nine!" To he ave the - le ad the - sea - - man spr ung, And - to - - the - pi - - lot - cheer - - ly sung "By the de ep nine!"
W:And bearing up to gain the port,
W: Some well-known object kept in view, --
W:An abbey-tower, a harbor-fort,
W: Or beacon to the vessel true;
W:While oft the lead the seaman flung,
W:And to the pilot cheerly sung,
W:   " By the mark -- seven! "
W:And as the much-loved shore we near,
W: With transport we behold the roof
W:Where dwelt a friend or partner dear,
W: Of faith and love a matchless proof.
W:The lead once more the seaman flung,
W:And to the watchful pilot sung,
W:   " Quarter less -- five! "
W:Now to her berth, the ship draws nigh:
W: We shorten sail, -- she feels the tide, --
W:"Stand clear the cable" is the cry, --
W:   The anchor's gone; we safely ride.
W:The watch is set, and through the night
W:We hear the seamen with delight
W:    Proclaim, -- " All's well! "
