Oh, the ocean is a fortune
for the people by the sea,
And they go out in their own boats
to feed their families;
And they sail to meet the sunrise,
these men who leave the land,
On the Bay of St Ann's.

And they rise up in the darkness,
and they sail to meet the light;
And they go out in their own boats
to meet the end of the night;
And they sail to meet the sunrise,
these men who leave the land,
On the Bay of St Ann's.

May the weather be fair
for the fishermen today,
May they return to safe harbour
and their homes along the bay.

Oh, the ocean is a fortune
of the people by the sea,
And they go out in their own boats
to fish for you and me;
And they sail to meet the sunrise,
these men who leave the land,
On the Bay of St Ann's.
On the Bay of St Ann's.

This variant and the video above were performed by the Englishtown Chorale on July, 13, 2013, as part of the Colaisde na Gàidhlig / Gaelic College 75th Anniversary celebrations. The chorale is under the direction of Evy (Dubinsky) Carnat. Englishtown is a small coastal community in the Canadian province of Nova Scotia, located partially on St Ann's Harbour as well as St Ann's Bay in Victoria County on Cape Breton Island. It is predominantly a fishing community.

A variant was recorded by Max MacDonald especially for a compilation album of various artists (Songs Of The Sea, trk#3, 1999, Stephen MacDonald Productions).

Liner Notes: Max MacDonald has had a varied career as a singer, actor, songwriter and currently as an entertainment manager. Max was lead vocalist of the hugely popular and ground breaking group Buddy and the Boys in the late 70s and early 80s and was a perennial favourite in the touring music and comedy revues The Rise And Follies Of Cape Breton and The Cape Breton Summertime Revue from 1977 until 1995.
