To Marywood


            The port’s in sight!

            Oh courage, mates!

A few more efforts with main and might,

While the wind of Heaven our sail inflates—

            And the port is ours!


            The port’s in sight!

            All danger’s past!

Away with the fears of the darkling night!

To the course begun hold sure and fast—

            And we’re safe on shore!


            The port’s in sight!

            The long cruise o’er

We put out in a boat that’s led us aright!

A few more strokes of the trusty oar—

            And the harbor’s won!


The port’s in sight!

Sing paeans of joy!

The sun has put all clouds to flight,

The waves leap up our vessel to buoy!

            We pull for the land!
