Delightful is the task to sing,

On each returning day,

The praises of our heavenly King,

And grateful homage pay.


The countless worlds, which, bathed in light,

Through fields of azure move,

Proclaim his wisdom and his might,

But O, how great his love!


He deigns each broken, contrite heart

With tender care to bind;

And comfort, hope and grace impart

To heal the wounded mind.


All creatures with distinctive cry,

From God implore their food;

His bounty grants a rich supply,

And fills the earth with good.


Delightful is the task, O Lord!

With each returning day

Thy countless music to record

And grateful homage pay.
