Representative Text

1 God of almighty power,
How glorious are thy ways!
Angels thy majesty adore,
All creatures speak thy praise.

2 Wherever eearth is fair,
Or brighter worlds extend,
Almighty Sovereign! thou art there,
Creation's Lord and Friend.

3 And where the stars are not,
Nor sun hath ever shone,
Beyond the flight of human thought,
There thou art God alone.

4 Heaven is thy glorious throne,
Earth does thy footstool seem;
But souls redeemed thou lovest to own
Thy richer diadem.

5 And while they bless thy name,
Hell trembles at thy rob:
Earth, heaven, and hell thy power proclaim;
All things proclaim thee God!

Notes

God of almighty power. [Omnipresence.] This hymn appeared in the English Baptist Psalms & Hymns, in 1358, and in the American Sabbath Hymn Book in the same year. This points to an earlier source from which the hymn was taken by the editors of both collections, but this source we have failed to find.

--John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)
