GREATNESS OF GOD




The highest heavens, the highest sun,
Are but faint emblems, of their Lord;
He is the great and mighty One,
Strong is his arm, and true his word.


On earth what can with him compare?
Princes from him derive their power;
Riches but sordid trifles are,
And beauty but a fading flower.


He formed the stars, those glittering orbs,
Which move and shine at his command;
He made the boisterous sea, and curbs
Its raging billows with his hand.


His awful thunder shakes the skies,
The dusky clouds he makes his throne;
With fearful speed his lightning flies,
And storms of hail come rattling down.


The blustering winds his will obey,
All nature trembles at his nod;
Ho governs with resistless way,
And spreads his terrors all abroad.
