  • What are the wild waves saying,
    Sister, the whole day long,
    That ever amid our playing
    I hear but their low, lone song?
    • What are the wild Waves saying?, reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).
  • Yes! but there's something greater
    That speaks to the heart alone:
    'T is the voice of the great Creator
    Dwells in that mighty tone.
    • What are the wild Waves saying? Refrain, reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).
