Waves loudly applaud,
In thank you to God,
And shout BRAVO on reaching full crest;
Then, they gently recede,
Being spent of their speed,
And lay back in still pools to find rest.

Then, gathering strength,
They stretch out full length,
And prepare for full praise once again;
With another proud roar,
They CRASH on the shore,
Then, creep back in their silent Amen.

Since the world began,
Unfathomable to man,
Is the respect nature pays to its Lord;
As ocean waves raise,
Themselves in full praise,
Why can't mankind behave in accord?
