837. Many and Great, O God (Wakantanka taku nitawa)

1 Many and great, O God, are your works,
maker of earth and sky.
Your hands have set the heav'ns with stars;
your fingers spread the mountains and plains.
Lo, at your word the waters were formed.;
deep seas obey your voice.

2 Grant unto us communion with you,
O Star-abiding One.
Come unto us and dwell with us;
with you are found the gifts of life.
Bless us with life that has no end,
eternal life with you.
