Arise All Things That God Has Made

Representative Text

1 Arise, all things that God has made
And praise His name and glory;
Each leaflet and each grassy blade
Do tell a wondrous story.

2 Though kings of earth together show
Their utmost strength and power,
They could not make a leaflet grow
On herb, or weed, or flower.

3 What shall I say when'er I walk
Where flowers are abounding,
And birds in song together talk,
As thousand harps were sounding.

4 What would I say, if I could spy
The secrets of the ocean,
And see the myriad life go by
In endless, streaming motion.

5 What shall I say when I behold
The stars in countless numbers,
And feel their smiling charm untold
While nature sweetly slumbers.

6 What shall I say when I ascend
To Him who made creation,
And see the angel host attend
His throne in glad elation.

7 What shall I say? Weak are my words
And humble my opinion!
How great Thy wisdom, Lord of lords,
Thy might and Thy dominion!

8 Arise, ye nations of the earth,
And lift your voice to heaven,
Praise God in songs of joy and mirth,
Who all these things hath given.
