The fisher’s boat has braved the tide,
Far, far beyond the bell.
His wife and child at home abide.
Fare thee well!

The darkness falls upon the main,
Far, far beyond the harbor bell.
God grant all craft sail home again!
Fare the well!

Above the rocks there gleams a light,
Far, far beyond the bell.
Read well its warning through the night!
Fare thee well!
