Away with the blast of the wind that blows
Where the mighty stream of the ocean flows,
Where the sun looks down on the laughing sea
And the waves dance over it merrily,
We ride on the water's breast,
On the billow's mighty crest,
And we sing as we play with the sparkling spray,
But no ear can hear what our voices say,
For half is borne by the breeze away
And the waves carry off the rest.
