Published in 4 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Nature, with solemn accent cries,
There is a God, that built the skies,
That formed the earth and spread the flood,
A self-existent, mighty God.

2 Creation's wonders, vast and bright,
Proclaim their Maker infinite;
Her bounties show to every eye
The goodness of the Deity.

3 But when we view each precious line,
Within the gospel all divine;
Justice and mercy there we trace,
Eternal truth, transcendent grace.

4 Thanks for the light of nature given,
Thanks for the surer guide to heaven;
For all the treasures of thy word,
We praise the great creation's Lord.
