O LORD, our heavenly king,

Thy name is all divine

Thy glories round the earth are spread,

And o'er the heavens they shine.

When to thy works on high

I raise my wondering eyes,

And see the moon, complete in light,

Adorn the darksome skies;

When I survey the stars,

And all their shining forms,

Lord what is man-that worthless thing,

Akin to dust and worms?

Lord what is worthless man,

That thou shouldst love him so?

Nest to thine angels is he placed,

And lord of all below.

How rich thy bounties are!

How wondrous are thy ways!

That from the dust, thy power should frame

A monument of praise.

To God the Father sing

Hallelujah and praise:

To Christ our great and gracious King

Your loudest anthems raise!
