|I SING the almighty power of God,
That made the mountains rise,
That spread the flowing seas abroad,
And built the lofty skies.
|2||I sing the wisdom that ordained
The sun to rule the day;
The moon shines full at His command,
And all the stars obey.
|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.
|4||Creatures, as numerous as they be,
Are subject to Thy care;
There’s not a place where we can flee
But God is present there.
|5||His mighty wonders are displayed
Where’er I turn my eye,
If I survey the ground I tread,
Or gaze into the sky.
|6||His hand is my perpetual guard,
He guides me with His eye;
Why should I, then, forget the Lord,
Whose love is ever nigh?
|Isaac Watts, 1674-1748|
