Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Lord, when I view thy mighty power

Lord, when I view thy mighty power

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Lord when I view thy mighty pow'r,
Thy wisdom and thy wond'rous ways,
I stand amaz'd, yet evermore,
I fain would shew thy love and praise.

2 Mine eyes behold where e'er I look,
More wonders than I can relate;
To read the whole of nature's book,
It shews that thou art wond'rous great.

3 Who sets the sun to run his rout!
Who fix'd and caus'd the change of moon?
Who brings both day and night about?
By the Almighty hand 'tis done.

4 Who send the late and early rain?
Who brings the winds from South & North?
Who warms the frozen earth again?
That all her seeds and plants come forth.

5 It is thy great Almighty word,
Which caused all these things to be:
They shew thou art the sov'reign Lord,
And all the praise is due to thee.

6 Lord, I am thy creation too,
Created for the noblest end,
And with astonishment I view,
That thou to man shouldst condescend.

7 To grant thy blessings from above,
And make us heirs of endless grace:
Astonishing what wond'rous love,
That God to man would show such grace.

8 All glory, honour, praise and pow'r,
Be to our great Almighty King,
Who lives and reigns for evermore,
To him eternal praises sing.
