As we (Dm)watched from the (D)harbor (G)wall -G


Though the (C)night was pitch black, there was no turning back
For (F)someone was waiting out (E7)there
And (F)each volunteer had to (C)live with his (Am)fear
As they (Dm)joined in a (D)silent (G)prayer.-G7-G6

(F)Carry us (C)safely (Dm)home(G7) from the (C)sea

As they (G)gallantly (C)fought, every (Em)one of them (Am)thought
Of (Dm)loved ones (D)back on the (G)shore -G


Then a (C)flicker of light, and they knew they were right
There she (F)was on the crest of a (E7)wave
She's an (F)old fishing boat, and she's (C)barely a(Am)float
Please (Dm)God, there are (D)souls we can (G)save! -G7-G6

They had (G)gathered in (C)pairs at the (Em)foot of the (Am)stairs
To (Dm)wait for the (D)radio (G)call -G


And (C)just before dawn, when all hope was gone
Came a (F)hush and a faraway (E7)sound
'Twas the (F)coxswain he roared, "All sur(C)vivors on (Am)board!"
Thank (Dm)God, and we're (D)homeward (G)bound. -G7-G6

 Home From The Sea Lyrics 

Chorus 

Home, home, home from the sea
Angels of mercy, answer our plea
And carry us home, home, home from the[ sea
Carry us safely home from the sea.

On a cold winters night
With a storm at its height
The lifeboat answered the call.
They pitched and they tossed
Till we thought they were lost
As we watched from the harbor wall.
Though the night was pitch black,
There was no turning back,
For someone was waiting out there,
But each volunteer
Had to live with his fear
As they joined in a silent prayer.
[Repeat chorus] 

As they battled their way
Past the mouth of the bay,
It was blowing like never before.
As they gallantly fought,
Every one of them thought
Of loved ones back on the shore.
Then a flicker of light
And they knew they were right.
There she was on the crest of a wave.
She's an old fishing boat
And she's barely afloat.
Please God, there are souls we can save.
CHORUS

And back in the town
In a street that runs down
To the sea and the harbor wall,
They'd gathered in pairs
At the foot of the stairs
To wait or the radio call.
And just before dawn
When all hope had gone
Came a hush and a faraway sound.
'Twas the coxswain he roared
All survivors on board
Thank God and we're homeward bound.
[Chorus]

Chorus 

[G]Home,[C] home,[F] home from the[C] sea
An[F]gels of mer[C]cy, an[F]swer our[G] plea
And carry us[C] home, home,[F] home from the[C] sea
Car[F]ry us safe[C]ly ho[G]me from the[C] sea.

[G]On a[C] cold winters night
With a storm at its height
The life[F]boat answered the[C] call.
They p[G]itched and they toss[C]ed
Till we thought they were[Am] lost
As we[D7] watched from the harbor[G] wall.
Though the[C] night was pitch black,
There was no turning back,
For some[F]one was waiting out[E7] there,
But each volun[F]teer
Had to[C] live with his fe[Am]ar
As they[D7] joined in a silent pra[G]yer.
[Repeat chorus] 

As they battled their way
Past the mouth of the bay,
It was blowing like never before.
As they gallantly fought,
Every one of them thought
Of loved ones back on the shore.
Then a flicker of light
And they knew they were right.
There she was on the crest of a wave.
She's an old fishing boat
And she's barely afloat.
Please God, there are souls we can save.
CHORUS

And back in the town
In a street that runs down
To the sea and the harbor wall,
They'd gathered in pairs
At the foot of the stairs
To wait or the radio call.
And just before dawn
When all hope had gone
Came a hush and a faraway sound.
'Twas the coxswain he roared
All survivors on board
Thank God and we're homeward bound.
[Chorus]
