1 Glory to the eternal king,
Clad in majesty supreme!
Let all heaven his praises sing,
Let all worlds his power proclaim.
2 Through eternity he reigns
In unbounded realms of light;
He the universe sustains,
As an atom in his sight.
3 Suns on suns through boundless space,
With their systems move or stand;
Or, to occupy their place,
New orbs rise at his command.
4 Kingdoms flourish, empires fall,
Nations live, and nations die,
All forms nothing, nothing all—
At the movement of his eye.
5 O let my transported soul
Ever on his glories gaze,
Ever yield to his control
Ever sound his lofty praise!
