O seas and rivers, bless the Lord,
The maker of all things.
Today creation is restored:
O bless him, all you springs.

Behold: the Son of God baptized
In waters He makes new.
The Father’s voice above the skies–
Bless Him, you rain and dew.

All natures, let His grace increase–
O Jordan, fill the earth!
In Him the Father is well pleased.
In Him, the world’s rebirth.
