Blessed be Thy name forever,
Thou of life the Guard and Giver!
Thou who slumberest not nor sleepest,
Blest are they Thou kindly keepest!
God of stillness and of motion,
Of the rainbow, and the ocean,
Of the mountain, rock, and river,
Blessed be Thy name forever!

God of evening’s peaceful ray!
God of every dawning day,
Rising from the distant sea
Breathing of eternity;
Thine the flaming sphere of light,
Thine the darkness of the night!
God of life, that fade shall never!
Glory to Thy name forever!
