1  Hear those soothing sounds ascending
From the winding path below,
And each with each in sweetness blending,
As the breezes lightly blow.
Jubilate, Amen.
See the vesper choir is wending
To the church, and chanting low;
Hark, hark! Jubilate, Amen.

2  Bear, ye breezes lightly blowing,
Sounds of peace through all the land;
Be thoughts of love on them bestowing,
Who in rapt attention stand.
Jubilate, Amen.
May each heart new rest be knowing,
Sent by heaven's divine command.
Hark, hark! Jubilate, Amen.
