1 Like the sound of many waters,
Or the roaring of the sea,
Voices of earth’s sons and daughters
Swell the song of Jubilee.
Hark the song! all the world is praising Him!
The world is praising Him, the word is praising Him!
O, praise the Lord! all the world is praising Him,
An anthem grand and free.
2 Lands once dumb have found their voices,
And the chorus rings more clear;
In his course the sun rejoices,
Voices new each day to hear. [Refrain]
3 Grander, fuller swells the chorus,
New-born nations raise the cry;
Golden days are just before us;
Praise to Him who rules the sky. [Refrain]
4 Mountains high or surging ocean
Can not stem the tuneful tide;
Death takes up the sweet devotion,
Joins the song the other side. [Refrain]
