I've been looking for these lyrics for a long time and like a previous posting they remind me of childhood holidays in the little fishing village of Appledore in North Devon.
Memories of primary school (over 40 years ago)! This one always sticks in the mind - I remember it had loads of flats to play on our recorders!!
We used to sing it at school assembly in Hastings, East Sussex, over 40 years ago. Hastings has the largest beach-based fishing fleet in Europe and everyone knew someone in the fishing community so very poignant.
wow-I have been singing this song to my children and they love it, but could only remember one verse -thanks for the rest. Brings back memories singing it during assembly at Kilimani Primary School in Kenya.
I come from Fishing stoc when I was a kid and was a regular hymn at school and sung regularly at funerals of family fishermen
I love this hymn. iIt was Hymn number144 in our Hymn books at Bursar St school Cleethorpes and made me think of my brother at sea. Thanks for the memories.
Thrunscoe School Cleethorpes as well - again over 40 years ago!!!
Portland Underhill junior school sang this one quite often in school in the mornings. That would be about 1975 ish.
Whiteshill school, GLOS in the early 80s. Thank you for that. I'll be singing it to my kids! I still find myself singing stuff I sang nearly 30 years ago and the lyrics speaking to me. Who'd have thought his song would touch so many people so many years later? We never know what footprints we'll leave.
Vine Road Primary Green St Green. My favourite school hymn. 1961/2/3/4
