    EIGHT BELLS
    By LCDR Bob Lockett

     

    Eight times ring the quarterdecks bell
    Loud and crisp let it be clearly heard

    Over the roar of the wild spindrift wave
    Through the decks to those below interned

    Sound it clear that his time was one
    Of long and faithful service conferred

    Whatchstander, ring your bell smartly
    Heard by crews in port or detachment far

    Ring the bell to honor his memory
    Ring it to mourn the crossing of life’s bar

    Toll the bell in fair winds or in storm
    On course true under Southern Cross star

    His revered place will forever remain
    Standing in our unbroken bluejacket line

    So solemnly ring the bell and grieve
    Over the lonely expanse of abyssal brine

    Toll it well for your honored shipmate
    As his watch, finally relieved, now is thine

    Steadfastly perform your duty well, Sailor
    As he now watches you from Heavens gate

    His duty to bear is now your sacred burden
    No matter, friend, what your rank or rate

    Until he welcomes you to the eternal patrol
    Piping you aboard ringing those bells of eight
