Reach The Morning Light (Navigators) video

In the distance I see a blazing light,
From the shadow of this deck on a ragin' night;
When this ship gets in we've won the fight,
Tie her up, make her sound,
and we're here to morning light;
All I ask you is one more chance
to get us in tonight,
Where the girl can reach the morning light.

And will we reach the morning light?
And will we reach the morning light?
In the middle of the darkened waves,
Will all of us go to our graves tonight,
Or will we reach the morning light?

Think on my father and my mother dear,
And my life out here at sea I don't give a care;
And my wife at home, poor womankind,
Knows I love to sail the sea
and I need her all the time,
Says, "John, you're only thirty-one.
Your days are yours to plan.
Go sail the sea and be a man."

And will you reach the morning light?
And will you reach the morning light?
In the middle of the darkened waves,
Will all of us go to our graves tonight,
Or will we reach the morning light?

Now the green light burns in the stormy air,
And the waves crash all around us
almost everywhere;
I could see that light and the day is near,
But with darkness all around us,
emotion still exists;
But I knew for a moment
that we'd be with them tonight,
Till we reach the morning light.

Till we reach the morning light,
Till we reach the morning light;
In the middle of the darkened waves,
Will all of us go to our graves tonight,
Or will we reach the morning light?
Or will we reach the morning light?
Will we reach the morning light?
Will we reach the morning light?
