First Line: Up and away! For the east wind is blowing
Last Line: Are going before us to welcome us home.
Subject(s): Sea; Ocean


UP and away! For the east wind is blowing,
And high on the rocks dashes swift-driven spray;
Far in the distance the tempest is growing
As we watch the approach of lowering day.

Up and away! At home they are waking
And hurrying down in the face of the gale,
While the glare from the east dims eyes that are aching
In search for a glimpse of an incoming sail.

Up and away! Though storm clouds are kissing
The measureless waste of fierce-flying foam,
For the blasts that over our vessel are hissing
Are going before us to welcome us home.
