Representative Text

1 Saints and angels sing his praise,
Ancient of Eternal Days,
Lord of earth and sea and sky,
God most holy, God Most High.
Planets circle by his laws,
he the First, the only Cause;
praise to him whose wisdom planned
stars unnumbered as the sand.

2 Worlds their Maker's hand proclaim,
sun and moon exalt his Name;
yet can shining stars above
share with us a Father's love?
For that love, by every tongue,
let the song of praise be sung:
sins forgiven, souls restored,
glory be to Christ the Lord!
