Abstract

Now haste we friends while morning beaming,
Softly on heaving wave
Our little bark's white sails are streaming,
Winds and waters let us brave,
But Fisherman glide warily,
Speak low and guarded be,
and throw your nets all silently,
Upon the glitt'ring sea
Not Ocean's Monarch shall escape us free,
Not Ocean's Monarch shall escape us free.
Speak low and guarded be,
and throw your nets all silently,
Upon the glitt'ring sea
Not Ocean's Monarch shall escape us free,
Not Ocean's Monarch shall escape us free.

And let us while this hour is lighting,
Sieze the ray with brave address
The enter-prize our cares uniting,
Soon shall crown us with success,
But Fisherman glide warily,
Speak low and guarded be,
and throw your nets all silently,
Upon the glittering sea
Not Ocean's Monarch shall escape us free,
Not Ocean's Monarch shall escape us free.
