1 Our Father’s wondrous works we see
In the earth and sea and sky;
He rules o’er all in majesty,
From His royal throne on high.

Refrain:
What a mighty God we serve!
What a mighty God we serve!
Reigning now above, on His throne of love,

When He says to them, “Be still”;
The heavens praise Him in a psalm,
And the angels do His will. [Refrain]

3 He maketh worlds by His command,
Weighs the mountains great and high;
He metes the waters in His hand,
Spans the lofty, starlit sky. [Refrain]

4 Our God, to save from sin’s control,
Gave His Son: a sacrifice;
His grace, abounding in the soul,
Makes the earth a paradise. [Refrain]
