261. We Sing the Almighty Power of God

1 We sing th' almighty pow'r of God,
Who made the mountains rise,
Who spread the flowing seas abroad
And built the lofty skies.

2 We sing the wisdom that ordained
The sun to rule the day;
The moon shines, too, at his command,
And all the stars obey.

3 We sing the goodness of the Lord,
Who fills the earth with food,
Who formed the creatures by a word
And then pronounced them good.

4 Lord, how your wonders are displayed
Each time we turn our eyes
To view the ground on which we tread
Or gaze upon the skies.

5 There's not a plant or flow'r below
But makes your glories known,
And clouds arise and tempests blow
By order from your throne.

6 On you each moment we depend;
If you withdraw, we die.
Oh, may we never God offend,
Who is forever nigh!
