Who gave the sun its noonday light Who




Who gave the sun its noonday light?
Who taught the moon to shine by night?
Unto the stars their glory lent,
And spread the heavens to be his tent?


Could man conceive the vast design?
Could he the grand machine combine?
Spread his weak hands from pole to pole,
And bid earth on its axis roll?


Who gave the winds their course to know,
The ocean tides to ebb and flow,
The day and night to keep their bounds
And changing seasons hold their rounds?


Could man, with all his skill, compose
The smallest blade of grass that grows;
Or at his will ordain to be
The meanest insect that we see?


‘Twas God who gave creation birth,
Whose wisdom formed the heavens and earth,
And then to crown the mighty whole,
Breathed into man a living soul.


Bow then to God all ye that live,
To him eternal praises give;
Who fashioned by his might hand
The sun and stars, the sea and land.
