33. Unto the Lord of All Creation

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,
Through 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 ev’ry need;
For God is Love: the Father's care
His smallest child shall duly share.

4 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.
