By Endurance We Conquer

lyrics

1914, in voyage from England
28 cast their fear to the gods
Poised to conquer the frost covered base of the Earth
At 6 months ensnared in a solid sea prison
Men and ship are beset on all sides
Abandon all hope - what the ice gets it keeps for its own

To the lifeboat, the James Caird, went six men
For 17 days facing Poseidon’s wrath
On the shores of South Georgia they settled at last
Now to traverse the hazardous landscape
Over mountains and glaciers they’d fight
Into Stromness where hope was now finally in sight

So far away - we lost no faith – in unity, in bravery, in honor
As one we’d live, as one we’d die and by endurance we conquered

1916 on August the 30
28 reunited again
Against all the odds they had outrun the cold clutch of death

So far away - we lost no faith – in unity, in bravery, in honor
As one we’d live, as one we’d die and by endurance we conquered
