Lord, when I view thy mighty power

Lord, when I view thy mighty power

Published in 3 hymnals

Full 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.
