FIRST VOICEA
-
So long adrift so fast agroundB
What foam and ruin have we foundB
We the Wise BrothersC
Could heaven and earth be framed amissD
That we should land in fine like thisD
We and no othersC
-
SECOND VOICEA
-
Convoyed by what accurs d thingE
Made we this evil reckoningE
We the Wise BrothersC
And if the failure be completeF
Why look we forward from defeatF
We and what othersC
-
THIRD VOICEA
-
Blown far from harbors once in sightG
May we not going far go rightG
We the Wise BrothersC
Companioned by the whirling spheresH
Have we no more than what appearsH
We and all othersC
