Over The Sea
by Sarah Hawker ASCAP


Over life’s strange restless sea
Beautiful voices come to me
Near and nearer yet they come
Breathing words of love from home

Over life’s strange restless sea
Over the sea, over the sea
Beautiful voices come to me
Nearer they come where e’er I roam

Breathing sweet sounds
Of the dear ones from home
Over the sea, over the sea


Oh my beloved ones
Our journey’s never done
Though our hearts alone we bear
This song we’ll ever hear

Oh my beloved ones
Over the sea, over the sea
Beautiful voices come to me
Nearer they come where e’er I roam

Breathing sweet sounds
Of the dear ones from home
Over the sea, over the sea

 

LINER NOTES:
The Chorus of this song was taken from a 1871 Hymnal and was written by Mrs. L. Matilda Fletcher.
