Let my voice ring out and over the earth,
Through all the grief and strife,
With a golden joy in a silver mirth:
I give thanks for Life!
Let my voice swell out through the great abyss
To the azure dome above,
With a chord of faith in the harp of bliss:
I give thanks for Love!
Let my voice thrill out beneath and above,
The whole world through:
O my Love and Life, O my Life and Love,
I give thanks for you!
James Thomson. 1834-1882
