1Gracious Lord of all creation,
Hear us while we sing Thy praise,
Fill our souls with veneration
For Thy wondrous works and ways,
Earth, and air, and sea, and sky,
Thee, Creator, glorify!
2Thou art He Who earth arrayest
In her garb of changeful hue;
Thou such matchless skill displayest
In yon Heaven’s arch of blue.
Earth, and air, and sea, and sky,
Thee, Creator, glorify!
3Countless forms with life are teeming,
O’er the land and in the deep;
Endless tints of color gleaming
In each glen, and dale, and steep,
Earth, and air, and sea, and sky,
Thee, Creator, glorify!
4Tokens of Thy love surround us;
Ever give us eyes to see
Beauty everywhere around us,
Teaching, mighty God, of Thee.
Earth, and air, and sea, and sky,
Thee, Creator, glorify! Amen.
1 Chronicles29:11Thine, O LORD is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all.
