1 Awake, my tongue! thy tribute bring
To Him who gave thee power to sing;
Praise him who is all praise above,
The Source of wisdom and of love.
2 How vast his knowledge--how profound!
A depth, where all our thoughts are drowned;
The stars he numbers; and their names
He gives to all those heavenly flames.
3 Through each bright world above, behold
Ten thousand thousand charms unfold;
Each, air, and mighty seas combine
To speak his wisdom all-divine.
4 But in redemption--oh, what grace!
Its wonders--oh, what thought can trace!
Here wisdom shines for ever bright:
Praise him, my soul, with sweet delight.
