1 Lord God almighty, in Thy hand
Rolls every world, blooms every flower;
O Maker of the sea, the land,
We praise Thy power.

2 For day and night that never cease;
For garnered wealth of harvest days;
For the pure mountains breathing peace,
Thy power we praise.

3 For the protected gift of life;
For reason, for home’s sheltered bower;
For the strong love of child and wife,
We praise Thy power.

4 For freedom; for the sage’s thought;
For martyrs brave; for poets’ lays;
For the great word by prophets brought
Thy power we praise.

5 For Him, Thy Son divine, who came
From Thee Thine all-transcendent dower!
To raise us from our sin and shame,
We praise Thy power.

6 For all He did our souls to save,
And guide us in Thy heavenly ways;
For His dear life, His cross, His grave,
Thy power we praise.

7 Illimitable is Thy love,
Thy mercy endless as Thy days;
Nor shall we cease in realms above
Thy power to praise.
