1. Over the ocean Columbus came,
With three little ships a-sailing;
Away from a town on the coast of Spain,
With courage and hope unfailing.
To seek a distant golden shore
He dared the seas unknown before;
And ever he piloted westward
Three little ships a-sailing.
2. Sing in his honor a song today,
The admiral bold and daring,
Who, day after day with no sight of land,
Through perilous seas came faring.
This mighty western land he found,
And proved to men the world is round.
All honor to gallant Columbus,
Admiral bold and daring.
