Representative Text

1 O see the blue waves as they chase one another
In tireless, endless play;
We’ll listen awhile to their musical murmur,
And hear what they will say.
“Obey, obey, obey God’s will today,”
They dance, and they glisten, and whisper this message,
“Obey God’s will today.”

Refrain:
To Thee, O God, we lift our song,
All Truth and Right to Thee belong.

2 O see the white clouds as they sail through the heavens
Upon their joyous way;
We’ll watch them awhile as they troop off together,
Then hear what they will say.
“Obey, obey, obey God’s will today,”
They scatter their blessings on hillside and valley,
And thus God’s will obey. [Refrain]

3 The hillside and valley, the forest and meadow,
The flow’ret by the way,
With never a murmur each duty performing,
This song will sing alway,
“Obey, obey, obey God’s will we pray,”
His blessings will never be offered or given,
Till we His will obey. [Refrain]
