Words by Isaac Watts (1674-1748)

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

1.  I sing th’almighty power of God,

That made the mountains rise,

That spread the flowing seas abroad,

And built the lofty skies.

I sing the wisdom that ordained

The sun to rule the day;

The moon shines full at his command,

And all the stars obey.

2.  I sing the goodness of the Lord,

That filled the earth with food;

He formed the creatures with his Word,

And then pronounced them good.

Lord, how thy wonders are displayed,

Where’er I turn my eye,

If I survey the ground I tread,

Or gaze upon the sky!

3.  There’s not a plant or flower below,

But makes thy glories known;

And clouds arise, and tempests blow,

By order from thy throne;

While all that borrows life from thee

Is ever in thy care,

And everywhere that man can be,

Thou, God, art present there.
