422. I Sing the Mighty Power of God

1 I sing the mighty pow'r of God
That made the mountains rise,
That spread the flowing seas abroad,
And built the lofty skies.
I sing the wisdom that ordained
The sun to rule the day;
The moon shines full at his command,
And all the stars obey.

2 I sing the goodness of the Lord
That filled the earth with food;
He formed the creatures with his word,
And then pronounced them good.
Lord, how thy wonders are displayed
Where'er we turn my eye;
If I survey the ground I tread,
Or gaze upon the sky!

3 There's not a plant or flow'r below,
But makes thy glories known;
And clouds arise, and tempests blow
By order from thy throne;
While all that borrows life from thee
Is ever in thy care,
And ev'rywhere that I can be,
Thou, God, are present there.
