1 Unto the Lord of all creation
Thy voice, my soul, in anthems raise.
Let ev'ry heart a fit oblation
Bring unto Him with songs of praise.
O contemplate in humbleness
The pow'r and riches of his grace.
2 In Him we live and have our being;
And all the hosts of heav'n and earth
The living God, all-wise, all-seeing,
Thro' His own Spirit brought to birth.
His holy Name, writ in His Word,
Thro' all the universe is heard.
3 The Lord who laid the earth's foundation,
And for the stars their course decreed,
Whose hand hath ordered all creation,
Provideth for our every need;
For God is Love: the Father's care
His smallest child shall duly share.
4 From out the gloom mine eye descrieth
The Maker's footprints in the sky;
the starry chorus testifieth
To His eternal majesty;
While on my path each tiny flower
Proclaims His glory and His power.
5 Into Thy hand, O God Almighty,
My weal and woe I will entrust;
My need Thou seest who takest pity
On every worm that crawls the dust.
In pleasure's path or sorrow's way
Be Thou my Guide, O Lord, I pray.
6 And when the morning star appeareth,
Thy grace, Thy glory we proclaim;
When falls the dew, and evening neareth,
O Lord, we call upon Thy Name.
Upon Thy mercy we rely,
Father, Creator, God on high.
