1 I sing th'amighty 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 by 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 form'd 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 sky!
3 Creatures, as num'rous as they be, are subject to thy care;
there's not a place where we can flee, but God is present there.
His hand is my perpetual guard, he keeps me with his eye;
why should I then forget the Lord, who is forever nigh?
