Lyrics:
Don't need a golden box for my bones
Don't need your weepin' and wailin'
Dont need my name carved into stone
Just sing me a hymn for the crossing
Don't speak of nights darkened by regret
Don't speak of today's light fading
Don't speak at all just sit here by my bed
And sing me a hymn for the crossing
The many miles we have roamed
Each one a mark upon our bones
In the end we leave alone
So until then, just sing me home
Don't fight the tears, the sorrow of the sea
Don't be afraid when it's raging
Don't fight the waves
Let them rock you off to sleep
While you sing me a hymn for the crossing
The many miles we have roamed
Each one a mark upon our bones
In the end we leave alone
So until then, just sing me home
Farewell my friends, although I'd love to stay
Can't keep the Old Man waiting
When he calls for you I'll be at the gate
To sing you a hymn for the crossing
To sing you a hymn for the crossing
