See him fly across the sky
saving souls no reason why
He in mercy goes in peace
each one’s soul to release
Which of them wants to be saved
takes them from a certain grave
Each of them who does repent
up to Heaven will be sent
But while evil’s still alive
all our saviours they will die
For in jealousy they live
in the righteous can’t forgive
So the mariner his bow takes
and his saviour does break
He who has him saved
now feels like a slave
So though he was sure to drown
shoots in malice shoots him down
So the saviour from the sky
for his vanity he cries
So for vanity he dies
shot down from the sky
The albatross he dies
the mariner’s foolish pride
