8. I Sing the Almighty Power of God

1. I sing the Almighty 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:
Who 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 flow'r below,
But makes thy glories known;
And clouds arise, and tempests blow,
By order from Thy throne.
Creatures (as num'rous as they be)
Are subject to thy care;
There’s not a place where we can flee,
But God is present there.

4.In heav'n he shines with beams of love,
With wrath in hell beneath:
’Tis on his earth I stand or move,
And ’tis his air I breathe.
His hand is my perpetual guard,
He keeps me with His eye:
Why should I then forget the Lord,
Who is for ever nigh?
