NOW to the God to whom all might

And glory in all worlds belong,

Who fills, unseen, his throne of light,

Come, let us sing a joyful song.

His spirit wrapped the mantling air,

Of old, around our infant earth,

And on her bosom, warm and fair,

Gave her young Lord his joyous birth.

He smiles on morning's rosy way;

He paints the gorgeous clouds of even;

To noon he gives it ripening ray;

To night the view of glorious heaven.

He drives along those sparkling globes

In circles of unerring truth;

He decks them all in radiant robes,

And crowns them with eternal youth.

So will he crown the deathless mind,

When life and all its toils are o'er:

Then let his praise, by all mankind,

Be loudly sung for evermore.
