Lord, Our Lord, Thy Glorious Name

Representative Text

1 Lord, our Lord, thy glorious name
all thy wondrous works proclaim;
in the heav'ns with radiant signs
evermore thy glory shines.
How great thy name!

Lord, our Lord, in all the earth,
how great thy name!
Thine the name of matchless worth,
excellent in all the earth;
how great thy name!

2 Infant lips thou dost ordain
wrath and vengeance to restrain;
weakest means fulfill thy will,
mighty enemies to still.
How great thy name! [Refrain]

3 Moon and stars in shining height
nightly tell their maker's might;
when thy wondrous heav'ns I scan,
then I know how weak is man.
How great thy name! [Refrain]

4 What is man that he should be
loved and visited by thee,
raised to an exalted height,
crowned with honor in thy sight!
How great thy name! [Refrain]

5 With dominion crowned he stands
o'er the creatures of thy hands;
all to him subjection yield
in the sea and air and field.
How great thy name! [Refrain]
