1 Sing the Creator’s glory, the wonders of his hand,
Sing of those works of splendor nor mind can understand;
Beauty of earth and heaven, of land and ocean deep,
Mountain and hill and valley, fair field or canyon deep.
He is Giver of the sunshine, of the shadow, of the rain;
He is Master of the sowing and the reaping of the grain;
With the glory of his name, all the universe shall ring;
He is Monarch over all, creation’s King.
2 Sing the Creator’s glory, the plan that he has made,
Morning, and noon and midnight, in endless turn arrayed;
Tell of the Circling seasons, the years that take their flight,
All in appointed courses, and guided by his might. [Refrain]
3 Sing the Creator’s glory, the marvels he has done,
Ever his works shall praise him, shall praise from sun to sun;
His shall be all the honor, the power and the love,
His shall be all the glory in earth and heav’n above. [Refrain]
