I would lyrics from this number by british folk rockers Andy Roberts. It is from 1973 album Urban Cowboy and writer is the same Roberts.

Home at last is when you're with me, safe ashore is when you're near
All my worries just a gesture take a look and disappear
In the starlight water shadows tumbling lines of tiny birds
Visions slipping through my fingers and I cannot find the words

In the forest there is beauty weak and diamonds for the least
For she knows and feels his weakness even though his pain has ceased
Lying in your shadow drifting needing loving when you're near
All my worries just a gesture take a look and disappear

(Not sure about "weak and" before "diamonds" - but not sure what else it could be !)

I hear this as "weeping diamonds for the beast".

Thanks Reinhard. I expect you are right. The more I listened, the more I was sure I heard a "k" sound !!

I agree with Reinhard's correction.

There is also an acoustic version of HOME AT LAST as a bonus track on the CD "Andy Roberts and the Great Stampede" (1973, reissued 2007). I listened to that as well as "Urban Cowboy" (1971) on Spotify; the words are a bit more clear there.
