1 The spacious heavens declare
The glory of our God,
The firmament displays
His handiwork abroad;
Day unto day proclaims His might,
And night His wisdom tells to night.

2 Aloud they do not speak,
They utter forth no word,
Nor into language break
Their voice is never heard;
Yet through the world the truth they bear
And their Creator's power declare.

3 The clouds of heaven are spread,
A tent to hold the sun,
And like a bridegroom fair
Comes forth the mighty one,
Rejoicing in his strength and grace
To run his wondrous daily race.

4 His daily going forth
Is from the end of heaven;
The firmament to him
Is for his circuit given;
His journey reaches to its ends,
And everywhere his heat extends.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
