God of the earth, the sky, the sea!
Maker of all above, below!
Creation lives and moves in Thee,
Thy present life in all doth flow.

Refrain

We give Thee thanks, Thy name we sing,
Almighty Father, heavenly King.

Thy love is in the sunshine’s glow,
Thy life is in the quickening air;
When lightning flashes and storm winds blow,
There is Thy power; Thy law is there.

Refrain

We feel Thy calm at evening’s hour,
Thy grandeur in the march of night;
And when Thy morning breaks in power,
We hear Thy Word, Let there be light.

Refrain

But higher far, and far more clear,
Thee in man’s spirit we behold;
Thine image and Thyself are there—
Th’indwelling God, proclaimed of old.

Refrain
