KEEP silence-all created things,
And wait your Maker's nod,
My soul stands trembling while she sings
The honors of her God.

Life, death, and hell, a worlds unknown,
Hang on his firm decree;
He sits on an eternal throne,
Supremely high is he.

His providence unfolds his book,
And makes his counsels shine,
Each opening leaf-and every stroke
Fulfil some deep design.

In thy fair book of life and grace,
Oh may I find my name
Recorded in some humble place,
Beneath the Lord, the Lamb.
