I'm looking for lyrics and chords for The Seaman's Hymn. Search triggered after seeing film "The Perfect Storm". Thanks.

I have not seen the film, or read the book I live the real thing daily... Do you mean the Hymn "For Those In Peril On The Sea" Guest Louise? if so I shall be happy to send them to you, the music I would have to fax or mail to you... Yours, Aye. Dave

Subject: Lyr Add: A SEAMAN'S HYMN (from A. L. Lloyd)
From: Malcolm Douglas
Date: 17 Jul 00 - 10:11 AM

Another possibility might be:

A SEAMAN'S HYMN

(A.L. Lloyd / traditional)

Come all you bold seamen, wherever you're bound,
And always let Nelson's proud memory go round;
And pray that the wars, and the tumults might cease,
For the greatest of gifts is a sweet, lasting, peace.

May the Lord put an end to these cruel old wars,
And bring peace and contentment to all British Tars!

"our brave" is sometimes substituted for "British".

I haven't found written music for the song, but you can hear a sound sample, as recorded by Holdstock & MacLeod on Deepwater Shanties:  Click Here.   It's usually sung unaccompanied, so you'd probably have to sort out your own chords

The hymn Dave referred to is commonly known as The Navy Hymn. My midi with lyrics is here. You'll be able to tell from the melody if it's the right one, Louise.

I thought it might be .........

Oh Lord above, send down a dove
With beak as sharp as razors
To cut the throats of them there blokes
What sells bad beer to sailors
?

The one above is a Tom Lewis number, "The Sailor's Prayer", with appropriate full lyrics in the DT.
