VIII. “Ye Seas and Floods”
By Richard Wilton (1827–1903)
 
O ye Seas and Floods, bless ye the Lord; praise Him and magnify Him for ever.

YE Seas and Floods, with voice of might
  Resound His Name for evermore:
  Ye rushing falls, that thunder o’er
The rifted rocks, and daze the sight:
Ye waves that with your crests of white        5
  Incessant dash upon the shore:
Ye Seas and Floods, with voice of might
  Resound His Name for evermore.
 
Ye torrents from the mountain height,
  Round your grey boulders dance and roar;        10
  Ye billows on the ocean floor,
Your hands in jubilation smite:
Ye Seas and Floods, with voice of might
  Resound His Name for evermore.
