Christopher L. Webber, an Episcopal priest, wrote this text, based on Psalm 19:1-6, in 1986.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

1.  The heavens above declare God’s praise,

The work God’s hands have made;

Day after day the tale is told,

And night by night displayed.

2.  There is no utterance or speech,

No voice has ever heard,

Yet to all nations comes the sound,

To every place their word.

3.  Forth like a bridegrom comes the sun

From its appointed place,

And like a hero runs its course,

Rejoicing in the race.

4.  It runs from east to farthest west

To make its course complete,

And nothing in the world beneath

Escapes in scorching heat.
