The Grace Darling Song




'Twas on the Longstone Lighthouse, there dwelt and English maid;

Pure as the air around her, of danger ne'er afraid;

One morning just at daybreak, a storm-tossed wreck she spied;

And tho' to try seemed madness, "I'll save the crew!' she cried.

And she pull'd away, o'er the rolling sea,

Over the waters blue —

'Help! Help!' she could hear the cry of the shipwreck'd crew —

But Grace had an English heart,

And the raging storm she brav'd

She pull'd away, mid the dashing spray,

And the crew she saved!
