I.

sound over all waters, reach out from all lands,
     The chorus of voices, the clasping of hands;
Sing hymns that were sung by the stars of the morn,
     Sing songs of the angels when Jesus was born!
With glad jubilations
     Bring hope to the nations!
The dark night is ending and dawn has begun:
     Rise, hope of the ages, arise like the sun,
All speech flow to music, all hearts beat as one!
