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, Your word formed the waters deep;
Oceans 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.
