Along The Shore

Dinah Maria Mulock Craik

Along the shore, along the shore
I see the wavelets meeting:
But thee I see, ah, never more,
For all my wild heart's beating.

The little wavelets come and go,
The tide of life ebbs to and fro,
Advancing and retreating:

But from the shore, the steadfast shore,
The sea is parted never:
And mine I hold thee evermore,
Forever and forever.

* * * * *

Along the shore, along the shore
I hear the waves resounding,
But thou wilt cross them nevermore
For all my wild heart's bounding:

The moon comes out above the tide
And quiets all the billows wide
Her pathway bright surrounding:

Thus on the shore, the dreary shore,
I walk with weak endeavor:
I have thy love's light evermore,
Forever and forever.
