Lyrics

It is time to go now
Haul away your anchor
Haul away your anchor
'tis our sailing time.

Get some sail upon her
Haul away your halyards
Haul away your halyards
'tis our sailing time.

Get her on course now
Haul away your foresheets
Haul away your foresheets
'tis our sailing time.

Waves are surging under
Haul away down channel
Haul away down channel
on the evening tide.

When you're sailing's over
Haul away for heaven
Haul away, oh heaven
God be by your side.

It is time to go now
Haul away your anchor
Haul away your anchor
'tis our sailing time.
