Words by Samuel R. Cowan, M.A. Music by Frederic N. Lohr.

Out on the deep, when the sun is low
And the sea with splendor burns,
With his sealy spoil, from his evening toil,
The fisher homeward turns,
And his oars flash bright in the ocean light,
And he knows that eyes on shore
Look out on the deep for his bright-oar sweep;
And he sings as he swings his oar:
"A long sweep, lads, And a strong sweep, boys,
And a song, as along we go,
For the hearths that yearn for our home return,
When the evening sun is low,
When the evening sun is low."

Out on the deep, when the sun is dead
And the first sweet star doth gleam
Of a day that is dead and a love that is fled,
The fisher oft will dream,
And he thinks, tho' far, like that first bright star,
She is still beside as of yore,
And his oars gleam bright in the sweet pale light,
And he sighs as he plies his oar:
"A slow sweep, lads, and a low sweep, boys,
And a song, as along we go,
For the star of love that is bright above,
And its gleam in the wave below,
And its gleam in the wave below."
