OUT on the beach at evening, under the shining stars,
Where the deep, dull dirge of the ocean's surge sweeps o'er the harbor bars,
Lights that move in the distance, lights that gleam on the shore, —
This seems to be eternity, where we shall slave no more.

Peace descends with the starlight, and over the soft, cool sands
The night wind blows the scent of rose from gracious garden lands;
Bright are your eyes in the darkness; sad is the song of the sea;
The world, dear love, is fashioned of we two and mystery.

Out on the beach at evening, where the strange, soft sounds of night
Come gently o'er the stretch of shore with a muffled cadence light,
Oh, this the time for loving, when the sea song overpowers,
And the mute stars shine above the brine through the precious, priceless hours.
