Author: Philip Frazier, 1892-1964 Hymnal: RitualSong #637 (1996) Meter: 220.127.116.11.9.6 Scripture: Genesis 1 First Line: Many and great, O God, are your works Lyrics: 1 Many and great, O God, are your works,
Maker of earth and sky;
Your hands have set the heavens with stars;
Your fingers spread the mountains and plains.
You merely spoke and waters were formed;
Deep seas obey your voice.
2 Grant us communion with you, our God,
Though you transcend the stars.
Come close to us and stay by our side:
With you are found the true gifts that last.
Bless us with life that never shall end,
Eternal life with you.
