I sing the almighty 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 His command,
And all the stars obey.
I sing the goodness of the Lord,
That filled the earth with food;
He formed the creatures with His word,
And then pronounced them good.
His hand is our perpetual guard,
He sees us with His eye;
And yet how we forget the Lord,
Who is for ever nigh.
