1 Hark, unto the anthems ringing
In the ocean deep!
When the boundless world of waters,
Wakens from its sleep.

O, the sea is full of music,
Skies are all alight,
Telling of the great Creator,
Of His pow’r and might.

2 Hail the time of joy and singing!
Hail the season sweet!
When all living things in gladness,
Sounds of joy repeat. [Refrain]

3 O, may love and adoration,
Evermore arise,
Unto Him who formed all beauty
Of the earth and skies. [Refrain]
