1 In all our Maker's vast designs
Lo! his eternal wisdom shines;
Through all creation spread abroad,
Loud it proclaims the Maker, God.
2 With rev'rence our admiring eyes
Survey thy wonders in the skies;
thy wisdom round the world we see,
The spacious earth is full of thee.
3 Above the earth, beyond the sky,
Stands thy high throne of majesty;
Nor time nor place thy power restrain,
Nor bound thy universal reign.
4 Amazing knowledge, vast and great!
What large extent, what lofty height!
Our souls, with all the powers they boast,
Are in the boundless prospect lost.
5 Lord, who cah speak thy wond'rous deeds?
Thy wisdom all our thoughts exceeds;
Vast and unsearchable thy ways,
vast and immortal be thy praise.
