Home down that river

by

M A Heathcote

In the moonlight there’s a river
That guides with me
Swift as a rising wave
Where I fall newly delivered
Like a man who’s been saved

In the moonlight there’s a river
Where the songs
Of for ever
Come to pass, oh!
Like a healing—Fever!

Oh, here I am at last
Oh, here I am healed at last_
Oh’ here I am saved
From the dark lord of the night
When a man loses his sight
He sinks in his heart
Into dungeons of the dark knight!

Oh—
I am healed at last?
I am no longer one of those forgotten souls
On a journey across the ocean waves, home_

Oh, am I caught in the maelstrom of a lover’s eye?
Drowning where the shadows hold
The weight of an anchor
In whose winding-sheet’s of death
Do the demon monsters moan what to do?
Or how or who to wail when they cry
And pray their souls to die.

Oh in the moonlight there’s a river
And it’s never been so lucid or so clear
Oh honey when I dream
I dream I’m nearing near
I dream of coming home_

Home down that river
Like a man who’s been saved
Home down that river
That guides with me
With mumbling words of a sage!
Swift as a rising wave
Home down that river
To the comfort of a new undying age
Home down that river
Like a man who’s been saved.
