Voice of the Sea

I think of a window often
That opens out to the sea,
Where the musical drums of the ocean
Roll out their songs to me.

Whether it whispers on beaches
Or whether it thunders on stone,
The mighty voice of the ocean
Speaks a message all its own.

For it speaks of the awesome power of God
As He stills the raging storm,
Or it speaks of the tender love of God
Soft... gentle... warm.
