By heavens light they sail away   Leave a comment


By heavens light they sail away

through Portsmouth’s entrance

across the sea

many sailors have sailed in once

our great navy

 

 

from time of Nelson’s great navy

Copenhagen,Ashanti , Nile and Trafalgar

 

 

to the home of britain royal navy

is where they sail from Portsmouth

a city full of fine magnificent history

 

from great first and second world wars

right back to king henry viii and the Elizabethans

the pride of Portsmouth is known for being mighty

 

 

in modern times Falklands , gulf  and my others times

Portsmouth has had its part to play in history

 

 

Field Marshall Montgomery

even enjoyed his football and watched our local team play

before and many great women and men of our services

left to fight on french beaches at d day

 

 

by heavens light did they sail away

stars guiding them to war and home

again with pride they were guarded by

our many ships of the great

Royal navy

 

Portsmouth the home of our proud Royal Navy
