83. Lord, Our Lord, Thy Glorious Name

1 Lord, our Lord, your glorious name
all thy wondrous works proclaim;
in the heav'ns with radiant signs
evermore thy glory shines.

2 Infant lips thou dost ordain
wrath and vengeance to restrain;
weakest means fufill 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,
human strength cannot compare
with the glory present there.

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.
