Representative Text

1 Far rolling voices of the sea chant loud upon the shore.
They tell the ancient mystery of God forever more.

2 Newborn, the sun in glory rides across the heav’nly fields.
The starry host in silence bides and to the morning yields.

3 White seabirds wheel against the sky, companioned with the dawn.
God, lift our winging souls on high, share in creation’s morn.

4 Your universal waters sweep upon the endless strands.
Your love and mercy ever keep asurge in all thy lands.

5 Far rolling voices of the sea chant loud upon the shore.
They tell the ancient mystery, O God, forevermore.
