1 I sing the mighty power of God
that made the mountains rise,
that spread the flowing seas abroad
and built the lofty skies.
I sing the wisdom that ordained
the sun to rule the day;
the moon shines full at his command,
and all the stars obey.
2 I sing the goodness of the Lord
that filled the earth with food;
He formed the creatures with His word
and then pronounced them good.
Lord, how Thy wonders are displayed,
where'er I turn my eye,
if I survey the ground I tread
or gaze upon the skies.
3 There's not a plant or flower below
but makes Thy glories known,
and clouds arise and tempests blow
by order from Thy throne;
Creatures that borrow life from Thee
are subject to your care,
There's not a place where we can flee
But God is present there.
