Hymn/Song Information

How marvellous God's greatness how




How marvelous Godís greatness,
how glorious His might!
To this the world bears witness
in wonders day and night.
In form of flower and snowflake,
in mornís resplendent birth,
In afterglow at even,
in sky and sea and earth.


Each tiny floweret whispers
the great life-giverís Name;
The mighty mountain masses
His majesty proclaim;
The hollow vales are hymning
Godís shelter for His own;
The snow-capped peaks are pointing
to Godís almighty throne.


The oceanís vast abysses
in one grand psalm record
The deep mysterious counsels
and mercies of the Lord;
The icy waves of winter
are thundering on the strand,
Eíen griefís chill stream is guided
by Godís all-gracious hand.


The starry hosts are singing
through all the light-strewn sky
Of Godís majestic temple
and palace courts on high;
When in these outer chambers
such glory gilds the night,
What the transcendent brightness
of Godís eternal light!
