267. The God Whom Earth and Sea and Sky

1 The God, whom earth and sea and sky
adore and laud and magnify,
whose might they own, whose praise they swell,
in Mary's womb vouchsafed to dwell.

2 The Lord, whom sun and moon obey,
whom all things serve from day to day,
was borne upon a maiden's breast
who fullest heavenly grace possessed.

3 How blest that mother, in whose shrine
the world's Creator, Lord divine,
whose hand contains the earth and sky,
vouchsafed, as in his ark, to lie;

4 blest in the message Gabriel brought,
blest by the work the Spirit wrought;
from whom the great Desire of earth,
took human flesh and human birth.

5 O Lord, the virgin-born, to thee
eternal praise and glory be,
whom in the Godhead we adore
forever and for evermore.
