O God, thy hand the heavens madeAuthor: Frank Leroy Cross
Published in 4 hymnals
1 O God, your hand the heavens made
And all that they contain;
The world appeared at your command,
And in it now you reign.
The restless sea, the land, the sky
Your handiwork declare;
The touch of your creative pow'r
Is present ev'rywhere.
2 To us are given gifts divine;
All talents you have sent.
Inspire us now to use them well
Your kingdom to extend.
We hold each gift a trust from you
Nor claim it as our own;
We gratefully acknowledge, Lord,
All things are yours alone.
3 Deliver us from selfish aims --
True stewards we would be.
Endow us with a deep desire
To live unselfishly.
A full accounting we must give
And see you face to face;
Let us approach your throne with joy,
Supported by your grace.
