    Faintly as tolls the evening chime,
    Our voices keep tune and our oars keep time,
    Soon as the woods on shore dim,
    We'll sing at St. Ann's our parting hymn;
    Row, brothers, row, the stream runs fast,
    The rapids are near and the daylight's past.

On the bosom of Father Thames,

Gracefully, gracefully glides our bark
On the bosom of Father Thames,
And before her bows the wavelets dark
Break into a thousand gems.

The barge she sat in, like a burnished throne,
Burned on the water: the poop was beaten gold;
Purple the sails, and so perfumed that
The winds were lovesick with them; the oars were silver,
Which to the tune of flutes kept stroke, and made
The water which they beat to follow faster,
As amorous of their strokes.

To reach the distant coast;
The breath of Heaven must swell the sail,
Or all the toil is lost.

Oh, swiftly glides the bonnie boat.
Just parted from the shore,
And to the fisher's chorus-note,
Soft moves the dipping oar!
