Safe, Safe Arrived

O, are there happy tidings

Tune: [O, are there happy tidings]
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 O, are there happy tidings,
From those we bid farewell,
To seek far distant regions,
I pray thee, comrade, tell,
If spared through many dangers,
The distant port they gained,
If while they passed, the tempest
In mercy was restrained,
'Till passed the good ship onward,
Its fury was restrained,

Chorus:
safe, safe arrived,
They reached the distant shore,
Thou shalt there meet them,
When thy life is o'er.

2 Say not, say not my comrade,
They ne'er will come again,
O did the tempest meet them
Upon the wat'ry plain?
Are they beneath the billow,
Where coral groves rise fair?
Alas! that I should lose them,
That they should slumber there;
And Oh so early taken,
So cheerful, young, and fair, [Chorus]
