In Our Boat

Dinah Maria Mulock Craik

Stars trembling o'er us and sunset before us,
Mountains in shadow and forests asleep;
Down the dim river we float on forever,
Speak not, ah, breathe not, there's peace on the deep.

Come not, pale Sorrow, flee till to-morrow,
Rest softly falling o'er eyelids that weep;
While down the river we float on forever,
Speak not, ah, breathe not, there's peace on the deep.

As the waves cover the depths we glide over,
So let the past in forgetfullness sleep,
While down the river we float on forever,
Speak not, ah, breathe not, there's peace on the deep.

Heaven shine above us, bless all that love us,
All whome we love in thy tenderness keep!
While down the river we float on forever,
Speak not, ah, breathe not, there's peace on the deep.
