No useless coffin enclosed his breast, Not in sheet nor in shroud we wound him ; But he lay like a warrior taking his rest With his martial cloak around him.

第 201 頁 - tis to glory we steer To add something more to this wonderful year ; To honour we call you, not press you like slaves ; For who are so free as the sons of the waves...
第 223 頁 - We buried him darkly at dead of night, The sods with our bayonets turning; By the struggling moonbeam's misty light, And the lantern dimly burning.
第 201 頁 - Heart of oak are our ships, Heart of oak are our men, We always are ready, Steady ! Boys ! steady ! We'll fight and we'll conquer again and again.
