1.  God of the earth, the sky, the sea!

Maker of all above, below!

Creation lives and moves in Thee,

Thy present life through all doth flow.

We give Thee thanks, Thy Name we sing,

Almighty Father, heavenly King.

2.  Thy love is in the sunshine’s glow,

Thy life is in the quickening air;

When lightnings flash and storm winds blow,

There is Thy power; Thy law is there.

We give Thee thanks, Thy Name we sing,

Almighty Father, heavenly King.

3.  We feel Thy calm at evening’s hour,

Thy grandeur in the march of night;

And, when Thy morning breaks in power,

We hear Thy word, “Let there be light.”

We give Thee thanks, Thy Name we sing,

Almighty Father, heavenly King.
