231. I Sing the Mighty Power

1 I sing the mighty 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 One
that filled the earth with food;
who formed the creatures with a word
and then pronounced them good.
O God, your 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 your glories known;
and clouds arise and tempests blow,
by order from your throne;
while all that borrows life from you
is ever in your care,
and everywhere that I may be,
you, God are present there.
