I sing the mighty power of God

if you do not hear the tune, click here.

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. 

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, 
wherever I turn my eye, 
if I survey the ground I tread, 
or gaze upon the sky! 

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, 
there's not a place where we can flee
but God is present there.
