All they could hear was the wind, and the waves crashing on to the rocks

How could they save the people on the rock Was their wooden boat stronger than the iron ship Were a man and his daughter stronger than the great waves that broke the ship in two The Forfarshire was wrecked off the north-east coast of England in 1838

All they could see was the night

And they could not hear the cries for help only the wind

They could not see the people holding on to the dark wet rock, slowly dying of cold

They could not see the ship, broken in two

This is the true story of Grace Darling a girl who became a famous heroine on that stormy night.
