1. The glory of the Lordn The heav’ns declare abroad;
The firmament displays The handiwork of God;
Day unto day declareth speech,
And night to night doth knowledge teach.

2. Aloud they do not speak, They utter forth no word,
Nor into language break; Their voice is never heard;
Their line thro’ all the earth extends,
Their words to earth’s remotest ends.

3. In them He for the sun Hath set a dwelling place,
Rejoicing as a man Of strength to run a race;
He, bridegroom-like in his array,
Comes from his chamber, bringing day.

4. His daily going forth Is from the end of Heav’n;
The firmament to him Is for his circuit given—
His circuit reaches to its ends,
And everywhere his heart extends.
