Urbs intacta manet

Lend us your sails, your stories too.

Taller than skysails in the blue,

Stowaways to the future, stowaways to the future

Lend us your sails,lend us your sails.

Come the sails we only dreamed of,

Breast again the gleaming tide.

Come the sails we only dreamed of

from the oceans far and wide:

Unfurl the sailing city,

Every hand will know the ropes.

Unfurl the sailing city

White horses of our hopes.

Urbs intacta manet

Grant us the wind be fair

Where cross-trees bloom in the gull-tossed air,

Stowaways to the future, stowaways to the future

Wind be fair, wind be fair.

Come the sails we only dreamed of

from the oceans far and wide:

Unfurl the sailing city,

Every hand will know the ropes.

Unfurl the sailing city

White horses of our hopes.

 

Maritime music by Sue Furlong
