where the waves grow sweet

A friend cited this passage in an essay that I read today. From Reepicheep in The Voyage of the Dawn Treader:

“Where sky and water meet, Where the waves grow sweet, Doubt not,
Reepicheep, To find all you seek, There is the utter East.” I do not know what it
means. But the spell of it has been on me all my life.
