The Navigators lyrics by Jude Reid

To the tune of Sacred Harp 121 (Florence), recording and score on youtube, tune is the middle line.

So many times the stars have turned Since in those days of yore The Navigators first set sail To seek a distant shore Through chilling winds and beating rains, Through waters deep and cold, Their enemies surrounding them, Take courage and be bold.

Though storms and hurricanes arise, And foes be all around, And foul Eternals may appear, To profane the sacred ground. Dark nights and clouds and gloomy fear — And dragons fearsome roar We'll hold as fast as heros of old Who sailed for Highguard's shore.
