Hymn/Song Information

Last night my lads we toiled away O so




Last night, my lads, we toiled away,
Oh, so drearily, drearily;
But we weighed our anchor at break of day,
Oh, so cheerily, cheerily.

So keep up heart and courage, friends!
For home is just in sight;
And who will heed, when safely there,
The perils of the night?



Just so we toil through earth’s dark night,
Oh, so drearily, drearily;
Yet we trust to sail at dawn of light,
Oh, so cheerily, cheerily.

So keep up heart and courage, friends!
For home is just in sight;
And who will heed, when safely there,
The perils of the night?



Though storm clouds come oft ere we land,
Oh, so readily, readily;
Still we trust as guides the Helmsman’s hand,
Oh, so steadily, steadily.

So keep up heart and courage, friends!
For home is just in sight;
And who will heed, when safely there,
The perils of the night?



When we reach heaven’s shore ’twill be
Drear, no, nevermore, nevermore;
Not a toil nor care, but jubilee
Cheer, yes, evermore, evermore.

So keep up heart and courage, friends!
For home is just in sight;
And who will heed, when safely there,
The perils of the night?
