There is a song that beckons me, to shore, where all is wide and free;
where meets the awesome sea with sky, which soothes the souls of such as I!
Tho' ocean is a noisome thing if we but listen, it will sing;
In such a lulling winsome way to little children while it play.
I wonder, as joys I see if Jesus, while on Galilee;
Could witness seagulls in their flight which is a soul-uplifting sight!
For we should never once forgot The God who fashions even yet;
All wonders of the sea and shore that we might praise Him evermore!
