Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

'Twas God who formed the rolling spheres

'Twas God who formed the rolling spheres

Published in 39 hymnals

Representative Text

1 'Twas God who fixed the rolling spheres,
And stretched the boundless skies,
Who formed the plain of endless years,
And bade the ages rise.

2 From everlasting is his might,
Immense and unconfined;
He pierces through the realms of light,
And rides upon the wind.

3 He darts along the burning sky,
Loud thunders round him roar;
Through worlds above, his terrors fly,
While worlds below adore.

4 He speaks--great nature's wheels stand still,
And leave their wonted round;
The mountains melt; each trembling hill
Forsakes it ancient bound.

5 Ye world, and every living thing,
Fulfill his high command;
Pay grateful homage to your King,
And own his ruling hand.
