Across The Sea of Sorrows


Based on “Across the Western Ocean”


Lyrics

Verse 1

Oh my life set sail all those years ago
Oh child where you bound for?
I’m searching for a place called home
Across the sea of sorrows
Across the sea of sorrows
Across the sea of sorrows
I’m searching for a place called home
Across the sea of sorrows

Verse 2

Yes the journey’s long and the waves are rough
Oh child where you bound for?
I’m longing for a place to rest
Across the sea of sorrows
Across the sea of sorrows
Across the sea of sorrows
I’m longing for a place to rest
Across the sea of sorrows

Verse 3

As the night grows dark and the air goes cold
Oh child where you bound for?
I’ll keep my eye on the light from shore
Across the sea of sorrows
Across the sea of sorrows
Across the sea of sorrows
I’ll keep my eye on the light from shore
Across the sea of sorrows

Verse 4

Near the journey’s end as I breath my last
Oh child where you bound for?
My brother Christ will carry me home
Across the sea of sorrows
Across the sea of sorrows
Across the sea of sorrows
My brother Christ will carry me home
Across the sea of sorrows

Verse 5

And then on that day when the clouds give way
The sea will be depleted
This child will rest in lands most blest
With no more sea of sorrows
With no more sea of sorrows
With no more sea of sorrows
This child will rest in lands most blest
With no more sea of sorrows
