The Winter Saves

The night-watch wait is over
To the lifeboats fast!
A roaring wave and overboard
Rescue ropes are cast

Heavy hearts are drenched in brine
Faith is now a test
Hands hard, they pull the line
But slack upon each crest

Unsaved souls cry out
Before the sea shuts lips
Those captured sink and cower
The rocks grind up the ship

Moon and morning silence fall
Life and boats make shore,
Nets bring in the silver shoal
With prayer and hope once more
