AWAY FROM THE ROLL OF THE SEA
(Allister MacGillivray)

Small craft in a harbour that's still and serene,
Give no indication what their ways have been;
They rock at their moorings all nestled in dreams,
Away from the roll of the sea.

Their stern lines are groaning a lullaby air,
A ghost in the cuddy, a gull on the spar;
But never they whisper of journeys afar,
Away from the roll of the sea.

Oh, had they the tongues for to speak,
What tales of adventure they'd weave;
But now they are anchored to sleep,
And slumber alee.

Come fair winds to wake them tomorrow, we pray,
Come harvest a-plenty to them ev'ry day;
Till guided by harbour lights they're home to stay,
Away from the roll of the sea.


There are a large number of groups and people who have sung this song. You could
have heard
the Atlantic Chorale, the Cape Breton Chorale, the Cantible Choir among others.
Many solo artists have sung the song as well.
