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.
