A voice from the sea to the mountains,
From the mountains again to the sea;
A call from the deep to the fountains,
“O spirit! be glad and be free.”
A cry from the floods to the fountains;
And the torrents repeat the glad song
As they leap from the breast of the mountains,
“O spirit! be free and be strong.”
The pine forests thrill with emotion
Of praise, as the spirit sweeps by:
With a voice like the murmur of ocean
To the soul of the listener they cry.
Oh! sing, human heart, like the fountains,
With joy reverential and free,
Contented and calm as the mountains,
And deep as the woods and the sea.
