Hymn/Song Information

There is a God all creation cries All




“There is a God,” all nature cries,
All knowledge proves “there is a God:”
“There is no God,” the fool replies,
Whose heart is duller than the clod.


The grateful clod, refreshed with rains,
Pours flowers along its maker’s path;
But the fool’s heart a fool’s remains,
untouch’d by love, unmoved by wrath.


And yet the wretch himself deceives;
While fiends believe, and trembling fly,
He trembles though he disbelieves;
And conscience gives his life the lie.


Can guilt, can madness further go?
Yes, his who God in works denies;
Whose creed saith “Yes,” who life says “No:”
Am I more holy, just, and wise?


My soul, sink down in shame and grief;
So fair without, so foul within;
Thy faith is specious unbelief,
Thy righteousness, self-righteous sin.


O God! Thou art, thou surely art,
And those who truly seek thee find;
Put thou thy laws into my heart,
In mercy write them on my mind.


Light in thy light I long to see,
Thy glory in thy goodness trace;
Ah! Then reveal thy Son in me,
Through faith may I be saved by grace.
