285. We Worship Thee, God

1 We worship thee, God, below and above,
and gratefully sing thy power and thy love.
Our shield and defender, the Ancient of Days
pavilioned in splendor and girded with praise.

2 We tell of thy might and sing of thy grace,
enrobed by the light and crowned by space.
Thy zeal for the just the deep thunderclouds form,
and dark is thy path on the wings of the storm.

3 The earth with its store of wonders untold,
thy power and care has founded from old,
established nature's unchanging decree,
and round it has cast, like a mantle, the sea.

4 Though children of dust, as feeble as frail,
by thy endless trust we fear not to fail.
Thy wing with its sheltering touch does us mend,
for thou art our maker, redeemer, and friend.
