Historical Note:  The Presbyterian Church in the U.S.A. and the United Presbyterian Church of North America merged in 1958 to form The United Presbyterian Church in the U.S.A., which joined with the Presbyterian Church in the United States in 1983 to create the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).

Words from The Psalter (1912), of the United Presbyterian Church of North America; the text comes from Psalm 65.

1.  Thy might sets fast the mountains;

Strength girds Thee evermore

To calm the raging peoples

And still the ocean’s roar.

Thy majesty and greatness

Are through all lands confessed,

And joy on earth Thou sendest

Afar, from east to west.

2.  To bless the earth Thou sendest

From thy abundant store

The waters of the springtime,

Enriching it once more.

The seed by Thee provided

Is sown o’er hill and plain,

And Thou with gentle showers

Dost bless the springing grain.

3.  The year with good Thou crownest,

The earth Thy mercy fills,

The wilderness is fruitful,

And joyful are the hills.

With corn the vales are covered,

The flocks in pastures graze;

All nature joins in singing

A joyful song of praise.
