The Untamed Ocean

  • The oceans boundless depths,
    Its blue and dancing billows,
    Its might crested waves
    Like giant feathery pillows,
    Has not been tamed by man
    Not taught to obey his will.
    ‘Tis still beyond his power,
    All its menaces kill.

    We may ride upon the waves,
    Or in its depths cast our net;
    We may see its waters splash
    On our decks, all foamy wet;
    We may cross to other climes
    On its mighty dancing waves,
    But the hand or eye of man
    Cannot find its hidden caves.

    Oh, vast ocean, in thy power
    Thou dost glory, and reveal
    That man is only man,
    That on us, the stamp and seal
    Of mortality doth rest,
    Only God’s immortal will
    Spoke unto the ocean wild,
    Whispered calmly: “Peace be still.”
