All day we hauled the frozen sheets to scape the
All day as cold as charity, in bitter pain and

And the house above the coastguard's was the
And well I knew the talk they had, the talk that
Of the shadow on the household and the son that
And, oh, the wicked fool I seemed, in every kind
To be here and hauling frozen ropes on blessed
