Blow, gentle gales, and on your wing
Our long-expected succours bring!
Look, look again,
’Tis all in vain!
Lo, behold a pennant waving!
’Tis the seabird laving!
Hark! a signal now fills the air,
’Tis the beetling rock resounding,
’Tis the hollow wave rebounding,
Wild as our hope, and deep as our despair!
