1 Lord, our Lord, your glorious name
all your wondrous works proclaim;
in the heavens with radiant signs
evermore your glory shines.
2 Infant voices chant your praise,
telling of your glorious ways;
weakest means work out your will,
mighty enemies to still.
3 Moon and stars in shining height
nightly tell their Maker's might;
when I view the heavens afar,
then I know how small we are.
4 Who are we that we should share
in your love and tender care -
raised to an exalted height,
crowned with honor in your sight!
5 With dominion crowned, we stand
o'er the creatures of your hand;
all to us subjection yield,
in the sea and air and field.
6 Lord, our Lord, your glorious name
all your wondrous works proclaim,
yours the name of matchless worth,
excellent in all the earth.
