Lyrics: Anon, probably the composer

What are sighs but sorrow's breeze,
Blowing o'er life's ruffled seas?
What are we? Barks sailing o'er
To a distant, tranquil shore.
Pilots then unfurl the sail,
Quickly seize the fav'ring gale;
This will waft you to yon sphere,
Free from trouble, free from fear.

Breath of sadness, fill my soul;
Waft me to that distant goal.
Airy wing, come bear me home
Upwards, never more to roam.
Sigh, thou brother of a tear,
Freely welcome, freely here.
On thee my soul would gladly rise
To its peaceful home, the skies.

George Smart
(1776 - 1867)
