163. Lord, Our Lord, Thy Glorious Name

1 Lord, our Lord, Thy glorious Name
All Thy wondrous works proclaim;
In the heavens with radiant signs
Evermore Thy glory shines.

2 Infant lips Thou dost ordain
Wrath and vengeance to restrain;
Weakest means fulfill Thy will,
Mighty enemies to still.

3 Moon and stars in shining height
Nightly tell their Maker’s might;
Human strength cannot compare
With the glory present there.

4 What are we that we should be
Loved and visited by Thee,
Raised to an exalted height,
Crowned with honor in Thy sight?

5 With dominion crowned we stand,
O’er the creatures of Thy hand,
All to us subjection yield
In the sea and air and field.

6 Lord our Lord, Thy glorious name,
All Thy wondrous works proclaim;
Thine the name of matchless worth,
Excellent in all the earth.
