|Tune:||OLD 136TH PSALM|
1 Heaven and earth, and sea and air,
All their Maker's praise declare:
Wake, my soul, awake and sing,
Now thy grateful praises bring.
2 See the glorious orb of day
Breaking through the clouds his way.
Moon and stars with silvery light
Praise Him through the silent night.
3 See how He hath everywhere
Made this earth so rich and fair;
Hill and vale and fruitful land,
All things living, show His hand.
4 See how through the boundless sky
Fresh and free the birds do fly;
Fire and wind and storm are still
Servants of His royal Will.
5 See the water's ceaseless flow,
Ever circling to and fro:
From the sources to the sea,
Still it rolls in praise to Thee.
6 Lord, great wonders workest Thou!
To Thy sway all creatures bow:
Write Thou deeply in my heart
What I am, and what Thou art!
