There's already the loginout filter you can use to completely customize the link. There's also the universal gettext filter to override internationalized strings.

Since the function is so simple, just creating your own or using the loginout filter is much easier than adding two separate filters that only change the text. Core only uses the function in the Meta widget, so that'd be trivial.

Out of interest, what do you *actually* want to change the text to in your use-case? (Note that "Login" is a noun, and "Logout" isn't a real word).

I don't think a filter here has much value.

Closing, valid points. @johnbillion, "Sign-in" in this particular case.

Was able to use:

function my_login_menu_customize( $link ) {

        if ( ! is_user_logged_in() ) {
                return sprintf( '<a href="%s">%s</a>', wp_login_url(), __( 'Sign-in' ) );
        } else {
                return sprintf( '<a href="%s">%s</a>', wp_logout_url(), __( 'Sign-out' ) );

        return $link;
add_filter( 'loginout', 'my_login_menu_customize' );
