Roar the waves, the waters praising

Roar the waves, the waters praising
God who saves; and from beneath
creatures rise in shapes amazing
to our eyes—he gives them breath:
God who set the planets blazing
holds us yet in life or death.

2. Cries a bird at break of morning —
music heard when life began;
Christ was there at day’s first dawning,
Son to share a Father’s plan:
Jesus born our hope and warning,
shall return, the Son of Man.

3. Sing the trees, the branches calling
in the breeze; the Spirit’s song
sweeps the grass, the flowers falling.
Look! He passes all along:
wind of God whose strength appalling
mocks the proud and bends the strong.

4. Sound the praise of God the Father,
voices raise to God the Son;
in the Spirit Christians gather —
speak his merit everyone:
not in vain words glory—rather
tell again what God has done.
