“I sing the 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.

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 e’er I turn my eye,
If I survey the ground I tread or gaze upon the sky!

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 every where that man can be, Thou, God, art present there.”

“The Heavens Declare Thy Glory, Lord” Watts/Mason

The heavens declare Thy glory, Lord; In every star Thy wisdom shines;
but when our eyes behold Thy Word, we read Thy name in fairer lines.

The rolling sun, the changing light, and night and day, Thy power confess;
But the blest volume Thou hast writ reveals Thy justice and Thy grace.

Sun, moon, and stars convey Thy praise round the whole earth and never stand;
So when Thy truth began its race, it touched and glanced on every land.

Nor shall Thy spreading gospel rest till through the world Thy truth has run;
Till Christ has all the nations blest that see the light, or feel the sun.
