114. Lord, Our Lord, Thy Glorious Name

1 Lord, our Lord, thy glorious name
all thy wondrous works proclaim;
in the heav'ns with radiant signs
evermore thy glory shines.
Infant lips thou dost ordain
wrath and vengeance to restrain;
weakest means fulfil thy will,
mighty enemies to still.

2 Moon and stars in shining height
nightly tell their Maker's might;
when thy wondrous heav'ns I scan,
then I know how weak is man.
What is man that he should be
loved and visited by thee,
raised to an exalted height,
crowned with honor in thy sight?

3 With dominion crowned he stands
o'er the creatures of thy hands;
all to him subjection yield
in the sea and air and field.
Lord, our Lord, thy glorious name
all thy wondrous works proclaim;
thine the name of matchless worth,
excellent in all the earth.
