I SING THE MIGHTY POWER OF GOD

Isaac Watts

I sing the mighty power of God that made the mountain rise

That spread the flowing seas abroad and built the lofty skies

I sing the wisdom that ordained the sun to rule the day

The moon shines full at His command and all the stars obey

 

I sing the goodness of the Lord that filled the earth with food

He formed the creatures with His word and then pronounced them good

Lord, how Thy wonders are displayed where’er I turn my eye

If I survey the ground I tread or gaze upon the sky

 

There’s not a plant or flow’r below but makes Thy glories known

And clouds arise and tempests blow by order from Thy throne

While all that borrows life from Thee is ever in Thy care

And everywhere that man can be, Thou, God, art present there
