188. 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 I turn my eye,
if I survey the ground I tread,
or gaze upon the sky.

3 There's not a plant or flower 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 everywhere that man can be,
Thou, God, art present there.
