“Shine ye like unto the sun and roar and move like unto the sea; impart life to mountain and desert like unto clouds, and similar to the vernal breeze, bestow freshness, grace and elegance on the trees of human temples.” -Abdu’l-Baha

(Capo 3)

Em Bm/D Cmaj7 G (repeat)
Shine ye like unto the sun
and roar and move like unto the sea
Shine ye like unto the sun
and roar and move like unto the sea
The sea, the sea,
the sea

Impart life to mountain
and desert like unto clouds,
and similar to the vernal breeze, bestow
freshness, grace and elegance

Em Bm6/D Em/C# Em/C Em/B Em/A G
Ooooooh
Em Bm6/D Em/C# Em/C Em/B Em/A G
Ooooooh

Em Bm/D Cmaj7 G (repeat)
Shine ye like unto the sun
and roar and move like unto the sea
Shine ye like unto the sun
and roar and move like unto the sea

Bestow freshness, grace and elegance on the
trees of human temples
Bestow freshness
on the trees of human temples

Shine ye like unto the sun
and roar and move like unto the sea
Shine ye like unto the sun
and roar and move like unto the sea
