Subject: Lyr Add: I'LL SAIL NO MORE (Bryan Bedford)
Anne and I sing this one occasionally:

I'LL SAIL NO MORE

by Bryan Bedford

Moored to this ring I will not drift
Anchored here I'll stay
Within the shelter of your arms
Watch the ebb-tide drift away
The tide may wait for no man
But this man sails no more
I've found what I was seeking on this shore.

chorus:
I'll sail no more, though breezes blow
I'll stay becalmed within these waters, I won't go away
I'll sail no more, my search is through
For the wonder that I found I found was you.

Moored to this ring I will not drift
Here I'll make my bed
Within the shelter of your arms
Bound by the words we've said
The light that shines within your eyes
To guide me safely safely here
The harbor light of blinding white, I will be near.

chorus:
I'll sail no more, though breezes blow
I'll stay becalmed within these waters, I won't go away
I'll sail no more, my search is through
For the wonder that I found I found was you.

Moored to this ring I will not drift
I'll step onto this quay
I'll hold the hand that rules this land
Your landsman I will be
And though the skies may darken
When storm clouds hide your face
Know that I am with you, I've found my place.

chorus:
I'll sail no more, though breezes blow
I'll stay becalmed within these waters, I won't go away
I'll sail no more, my search is through
For the wonder that I found I found was you.
