'Twas on the tenth of April a bright and sunny day
in the busy town of Southampton I stood upon the quay
There were thousands there beside me
an historic sight to see
As the mighty ship Titanic
was sailing out to sea
I stopped looked and wondered
as the passengers went by
For no-one thought of danger
as they said their last goodbye
'Twas but a few days later
when all on board were gay and bright
When a crash was heard
like thunder in the stillness of the night
All hands on deck the captain ordered
and willingly did they obey
While a message he was sending
just two thousand miles away
We've struck a mighty iceberg
and we're sinking very fast
May God speed you quickly to us
though two thousand miles away

I think a line is missing
plus a last verse

If anyone can help with this I'd be grateful

My Grandma recited this poem every Christmas as her 'turn'.
The other lines I remember were something like this:

And the band were sweetly playing “Nearer My God To Thee”

And that faithful operator was on duty down below
We never will forget him Jack Phillips was his name.

There also may have been something about an SOS but I'm not sure.

I hope that is of some help!
