Hold us a seat at Fiddler’s Green Braz
RECALLED TO DUTY – THE ETERNAL VOYAGE!
Bon Voyage to those who’ve set sail ~
We bid them farewell as we man the rail.
Let us be Joyous and let us not weep ~
For those who have now crossed over the deep.
When a Sailor’s last roll call is made ~
His final embarking shant be delayed.
So lower the Colors, let them be furled ~
Each time a Sailor disembarks this world.
The crew onboard in Heaven awaits ~
The Eternal reunion of their shipmates.
They’ll be welcomed home by those onboard ~
Moored in peaceful waters with the Lord.
As he approaches, he’ll call “Ahoy! The ship!” ~
Now in safe harbor, an Eternal trip.
Then he’ll hear “Sailor on deck! Hoist the flag!,” ~
“Help him get settled! Help stow his seabag!”
Be it known that it’s a Divine remand ~
To ship in Heaven, ye Seafaring Man.
On permanent station forevermore ~
Peaceful duty for Veterans of war.
And when he’s weighed anchor for the last time ~
We’ll Honor his memory so sublime.
We’ll all reminisce and hoist a brew ~
In a Toast of Honor to the crew.
