Representative Text

1 How precious the thought that the God of all pow'r
Is ev'rywhere always the same;
He knoweth His own wheresoever they be,
And He calleth the stars by their name.

Refrain:
He calleth the stars by their name,
He calleth the stars by their name;
he knoweth His own wheresoever they be,
And He calleth the stars by their name.

2 The heavens declare the great glory of God,
They spread forth His excellent fame;
Praise God, I'm His child, and I read in His word

Some day they shall meet Him and look on His face--
He calleth the stars by their name. [Refrain]
