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!
