Hymn/Song Information

I sing the mighty power of God That made




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.


Lord! how thy wonders are displayed
Where'er I turn mine 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, as numerous as they be,
Are subject to Thy care;
There’s not a place where we can flee
But God is present there.


His hand is my perpetual guard,
He guides me with His eye;
Why should I, then, forget the Lord,
Whose love is ever nigh?


While all that borrows
life from thee is ever in thy care;
and everywhere that we can be,
thou, God art present there.

And then pronounced them good.


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.


His hand is my perpetual guard,
He keeps me with His eye;
Why should I, then, forget the Lord,
Who is for ever nigh?
