AMID the splendors of the sun,

Great God! thy love appears,

In the soft radiance of the moon,

Among a thousand stars.

Nature, through all her ample round,

Thy boundless power proclaims;

And in melodious accents speaks

The goodness of thy names.

Thy justice, holiness and truth,

Our solemn awe excite;

But the sweet charm of sovereign grace 

O'erpower us with delight.

In all thy doctrine and commands-

Thy counsels and designs-

In every work thy hands have framed

Thy love supremely shines.

Angels and men, the news proclaim

Through earth and heaven above

The joyful, all-transporting news,

That God the Lord is love.
