Come Sail Away

Our boat prepared it’s time to go

What lies ahead we do not know

With compass set and stars to guide

We stand and face the ocean wide

 

With sails unfurled the wind’s our friend

The challenge real to journeys end                                     

A voice is calling deep within

My heart is yearning to begin             

 

Come sail away with me my love        

Come sail away though storms there’ll be

Come sail away with me, my love, my own            

Come sail away with me.

 

And in the silence of the night

And in our longing for the light

To sense somehow we’re not alone

When we are far away from home

          

The voyage old, the voyage new

For others made the voyage too

There’s much to learn, there’s much to give

As we devote the lives we live

 

Come sail away with me my love        

Come sail away though storms there’ll be

Come sail away, my love, my own            

Come sail away with me.

 

The life we share will change and grow

Just as the tides ebb and flow

And when at last our journey’s through

I’ll be the one still loving you.
