| What are the wild waves saying,|
Sister, the whole day long,
That ever amid our playing
I hear but their low, lone song?
| What are the wild Waves saying?|
| Yes! but theres something greater|
That speaks to the heart alone:
T is the voice of the great Creator
Dwells in that mighty tone.
| What are the wild Waves saying? Refrain.|
