We praise you, Lord; it’s good to raise
our hearts and voices in your praise;
your nature and your works invite
us make this duty our delight!
You formed the stars, those heavenly flames;
you count their numbers, call their names;
your wisdom’s vast! It knows no bound,
a deep where all great thoughts are found.
Lord, you are great, and great your might,
and all your glories infinite!
You crown the meek, reward the just,
and take great pleasure in their trust.
The saints are lovely in your sight;
you view your children with delight!
You know their hopes, you calm their fear;
you see and love your image there.
