On a cold winters night with a storm at its height
The lifeboat answered the call
They pitched and they tossed 'till we thought they were lost
As we watched from the harbor wall
Though the night was pitch black there was no turning back
For someone was waiting out there
And each volunteer had to live with his fear
As they joined in a silent prayer

Carry us home, home, home from the sea
Angels of mercy answer our plea
And carry us home, home, home from the sea
Carry us safely home from the sea

As they battled their way ast the mouth of the bay
It was blowing like never before
As they gallantly fought every one of them thought
Of loved ones back on the shore
Then a flicker of light and they knew they were right
There she was on the crest of a wave
She's an old fishing boat and she's barely afloat
Please God there are souls we can save

And carry them home, home, home from the sea
Angels of mercy answer our plea
And carry us home, home, home from the sea
Carry us safely home from the sea

And back in the town on a street that runs down
To the sea and the harbor wall
They'd gathered in pairs at the foot of the stairs
To wait or the radio call
And just before dawn when all hope had gone
Came a hush and a faraway sound
'Twas the coxswain he roared all survivors on board
Thank God and we're homeward bound

Carry us home, home, home from the sea
Angels of mercy answer our plea
And carry us home, home, home from the sea
Carry us safely home from the sea

Home, home, home from the sea
Angels of mercy answer our plea
And carry us home, home, home from the sea
Carry us safely home from the sea
