1  Hark! to the cry "Land-ho, land-ho,"
It echoes from the gale,
Down from the top, "Land-ho, land-ho,"
The look-out's cheerful hail,
"Land-ho, land-ho, land-ho, Hurrah!"
It broadens o'er the foam,
"Land-ho, land-ho, land-ho,"
Give one cheer more
For the dear old shore.
For England, hearth, and home.
Land-ho, Hurrah!

2  Now the glad cry "Land-ho, land-ho,"
It means no coral strand,
Long has the cry, we know, we know,
Hailed fair, but foreign land,
"Land-ho, land-ho, land-ho, Hurrah!"
White cliffs rise from the foam,
"Land-ho, land-ho, land-ho,"
And loud and clear
Ringeth out our cheer,
'Tid England, hearth and home.
Land-ho, Hurrah!
