1 Almighty God, thy pow'rful word
From nothing all things brought;
Earth seas, and skies, by thee their Lord,
With skill divine were wrought.
2 Thy pleasure heav'nly hosts fulfil;
For thee each planet rolls:
Earth, sun, and stars perform thy will;
Thy nod the world controls.
3 Thou over all art Lord supreme;
All else from the derive.
No being can dispute thy claim,
Or independent live.
4 To thee, our Lord, we therefore bow;
To thee, our all resign.
Entire to thee ourselves we vow,
For we are wholly thine. Source: A Collection of Hymns and A Liturgy: for the use of Evangelical Lutheran Churches; to which are added prayers for families and individuals #35
