The heavens declare the glory of God And the firmament showeth his handiworkPublished in 54 hymnals
1 The heavens declare the glory of God: and the firmament showeth His handy work.
2 Day unto day uttereth speech: and night unto night showeth knowledge.
3 There is no speech nor language: where their voice is not heard.
4 Their line is gone out througt all the earth: and their words to the end of the world.
5 In them hath He set a tabernacle for the sun: which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.
6 His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and its circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.
7 The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.
8 The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.
9 The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true, and righteous altogether.
10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much find gold: sweeter also than honey, and the honey comb.
11 Moreover, by them is Thy servant warned: and in keeping them there is great reward.
12 Who can understand his errors; cleanse Thou me from secret faults.
13 Keep back Thy servant also from presumptuous sins, let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.
14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart: be acceptable in Thy sight, O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son: and to the Holy Ghost; As it was in the beginning is now, and eve shall be: world without end. Amen.
