88 ~ I Sing the Mighty Power of God
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 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. Lord, how Thy wonders are displayed Where'er 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. Creatures that borrow life from Thee Are subject to Thy care; There's not a place where we can flee But God is present there.
