25. Almighty Creator on Earth and Above

Almighty Creator
on earth and above,
We gratefully sing
your power and your love;
Our Shield and Defender,
the Ancient of Days,
Pavilioned in splendor,
and girded with praise.

We tell of your might,
We sing of your grace,
Whose robe is the light,
whose canopy space;
Your chariots of wrath the
deep thunderclouds form,
And dark is your path on
the wings of the storm.

Your bountiful care
what tongue can recite?
It breathes in the air,
It shines in the light;
It streams from the hills,
it descends to the plain,
And sweetly distils in
the dew and the rain.

Frail children of dust,
and feeble as frail,
In you do we trust,
Nor find you to fail,
Your mercies how tender,
how firm to the end,
Our Maker, Defender,
Redeemer and Friend.
