NATURE, with all her powers, shall sing

Her great Creator, and her King:

Nor air, nor earth, nor skies, nor seas,

Deny the tribute of their praise.

Ye angels near his radiant throne,

Unite to make his glories known;

Attune your harps and spread the sound

Throughout creation's utmost bound.

O may our grateful zeal employ 

Each power of mind to hymns of joy:

And join, with heart-inspiring songs,

The anthems of angelic tongues.

Yet, gracious God, our feeble frame

Attempts in vain to reach thy name;

The highest notes that angels raise

Fall far below thy glorious praise.
