Blue is the sea below you.
Blue is the sky above.
Peace is the word we owe you,
Friends and the sails we love.

Glide to enchanting havens,
Freedom and peace to find!
We with the wrens and ravens
Linger at home behind.

Never may fate ill-treat you!
Ever may God be nigh!
We in the sunset meet you,
Winged with prayer. Goodbye!
