1 Eternal GOD! Almighty cause
Of earth, and seas, and worlds unknown;
All things are subject to thy laws;
All things depend on thee alone.
2 Thy glorious Being simply stands,
Of all within itself possest;
Control'd by none are thy commands;
Thou from thyself alone art blest.
3 To thee alone ourselves we owe;
Let heaven and earth due homage pay;
All other gods we disavow,
Deny their claims, renounce their sway.
4 Spread thy great name thro' heathen lands;
Their idol-deities dethrone;
Reduce the world to thy command;
And reign, as thou art, GOD alone.
