Hymn/Song Information

Let heaven arise let earth appear said

Let heavín arise, let earth appear,
said the Almighty Lord:
The heavín arose, the earth appeared,
at his creating word.

Thick darkness brooded oíer the deep:
God said, ĎLet there be light:í
The light shone forth with smiling ray,
and scattered ancient night.

He bade the clouds ascend on high;
the clouds ascend, and bear
A watíry treasure to the sky,
and float upon the air.

The liquid element below
was gathered by his hand;
The rolling seas together flow,
and leave the solid land.

With herbs, and plants, and fruitful trees,
the new-formed globe he crowned,
Ere there was rain to bless the soil,
or sun to warm the ground.

Then high in heavínís resplendent arch
he placed two orbs of light,
He set the sun to rule the day,
the moon to rule the night.

Next, from the deep, thí Almighty King
did vital beings frame;
Fowls of the air of every wing,
and fish of every name.

To all the various brutal tribes
he gave their wondrous birth;
At once the lion and the worm
sprung from the teeming earth.

Then, chief oíer all his works below,
at last was Adam made;
His Makerís image blessed his soul,
and glory crowned his head.

Fair in thí Almighty Makerís eye
the whole creation stood.
He viewed the fabric he had raised;
his word pronounced it good.
