Oh! Listen you wives and mothers,
Oh, listen to these lines I crave,
Over five hundred souls they've perished,
And meet a watery grave!
Each neighbour, each friend and relation,
Are now overwhelmed with grief,
Lend a hand then all o'er the nation,
To give the poor sufferers relief

Chorus: Oh! What must have been the feelings,
Of those from the Atlantic saved!
While thinking of those have perished,
And sleep in a watery grave.

The Atlantic that ill-fated Vessel,
From Liverpool sailed away,
With Men, Women and Children,
There (sic) hearts were blythe and gay;
And when they left old England,
To reach the American shore,
Many of them they little thought,
That their friends they would ne'er see more.
