1 Author of every work divine,
Who dost thro' both creations shine,
The God of nature and of grace,
Thy glorious steps in all we see,
And wisdom attribute to thee,
And power, and majesty, and praise.
2 That all-informing breath thou art,
Who dost continued life impart,
And bidst the world persist to be;
Garnish'd by thee yon azure sky;
And all those beauteous orbs on high
Depend in golden chains from thee.
3 Thou dost create the earth anew,
Its Maker and Preserver too,
By thine almighty arm sustain;
Nature perceives thy secret force,
And still holds on her even course,
And owns thy providential reign.
4 Thou art the Universal Soul,
The plastick power that fills the whole,
And governs earth, air, sea, and sky;
The creatures all thy breath receive,
And who by thy inspiring live,
Without thy inspiration die.
5 Spirit immense, eternal Mind!
Thou on the souls of all mankind
Dost with benignest influence move;
Pleas'd to restore a sinful race,
And new create a world of grace
In all the image of thy love.
