Procol Harum

Procol Harum
Wreck Of The Hesperus

lyrics by Keith Reid
We'll hoist a hand, becalmed upon a troubled sea
"Make haste your funeral," cries the Valkyrie
We'll hoist a hand or drown amidst stormy sea
"Here lies a coffin," cries the cemet'ry, it calls to me
And all for nothing, quite in vain, was hope forever tossed
No thoughts explained, no moments gained, all hope forever lost
One moment's space, one moment's final fall from grace
Burned by fire, blind in sight, lost in arms

We'll hoist a hand becalmed upon a stormy sea
I fear a mighty wave is threatening me
We'll hoist a hand or drown amidst a stormy sea
"Come follow after," cry the humble, you will surely see
But still for nothing, quite in vain, was hope forever tossed
No thoughts explained, no moments gained, all hope forever lost
One moment's space, one moment's final fall from grace
Burned by fire, blind in sight, lost in arms
