The Sea Is Singing
Since I have heard the music of the sea
I cannot bear to hear the voice of man
Mumbling discordant tones, for clear and free
The waves are chanting of a master-plan--
The earth a great Democracy of Love.
They sing the timeless lyric, "Peace, be still!
The God of Heaven watches from above
And wind and wave and man obey His will."
War drums will cease. The strength of wrong shall fail.
Wearing His shield, we shall erase the bars
Of hate and greed that right may yet prevail
And WORLD DEMOCRACY outlast the stars.
Above the clanging of the tongues of fools,
The sea is singing that the great God rules.
