LXXIII. Praise to the Creator

1 Eternal Majesty on High,
Thou God of Pow'r and Love,
Thy Hands have spread the starry Sky,
And form'd the World above.

2 This Globe below shews forth thy Might,
Thy Goodness and thy Skill;
The Sun, the Moon, the Day, the Night,
Thy Pleasure do fulfil.

3 Beasts, Birds, Fish, Insects all declare
Thou art the mighty God;
Fire, Hail, and Storms, Earth, Water, Air,
Declare thy Name abroad.

4 Trees, Mountains, Rivers, Rocks, and Plains,
Gardens, and fruitful Lands,
Proclaim "The God of Goodness reigns;"
And will while Nature stands.

5 All Things below, and all above,
God, Wise, Good, Great proclaim;
Then let the Children of his Love
Delight to bless his Name.

6 The heav'nly Father, and the Son,
And Spirit we adore;
'Tis now as 'twas when Time begun,
And shall be evermore.
