Capsized by a wave / brought down by the reef

Don’t say, “Home is so far away!”

it won’t help anyway / try to breathe!


Cold winds blow away / all things closing in

Don’t say, “God is so far away!”

He won’t help anyway / try to stay


Don’t lose sight of me / don’t fall into the deep

Don’t say, “hope is so far away!”

that won’t get you saved / hold to me

that won’t get you saved / hold to me

that won’t get you saved / hold to me


Hold on to my bare hand

Always I’ll be your man

Hold on to my bare hand

Again we both shall stand


Hold on you’re slipping fast (I’ll save you and bring you home)

All this will come to pass (don’t leave me all alone)

Hold on and swim to land (the water’s as cold as stone)

You’ll live, my one demand (the grey is turning gold)


Hold on to my bare hand

Always I’ll be your man

Hold on to my bare hand

Again we both shall stand


Hold on you’re slipping fast (I’ll save you and bring you home)

All this will come to pass (don’t leave me all alone)

Hold on and don’t look back (the water’s as cold as stone)

Your ship has come at last (the grey is turning gold)
