Songs
III. ‘Let my voice ring out and over the earth’
By James Thomson (1834–1882)
 
LET my voice ring out and over the earth,
    Through all the grief and strife,
With a golden joy in a silver mirth:
        Thank God for Life!
 
Let my voice swell out through the great abyss        5
    To the azure dome above,
With a chord of faith in the harp of bliss:
        Thank God for Love!
 
Let my voice thrill out beneath and above,
    The whole world through:        10
O my Love and Life, O my Life and Love,
        Thank God for you!
