333. I sing the almighty power of God

1 I sing the almighty power 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 God’s command, and all the stars obey.

2 I sing the goodness of the Lord, that filled the earth with food;
God formed the creatures with a word, and then pronounced them good.
Lord, how thy wonders are displayed, where’er I turn my eyes,
if I survey the ground I tread, or gaze upon the skies!

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 I could be, thou, God, art present there.
