O Lord, how manifold the works
In wisdom wrought by Thee;
The wealth of Thy creation fills
The earth and mighty sea.

Let God rejoice in all His works,
And let His works proclaim
Forevermore their Maker’s praise
And glorify His name.

While life shall last my thankful lips
A song to God will raise,
And while my being I possess,
My Maker I will praise.

My heart shall think upon His grace
In meditation sweet;
My soul, rejoicing in the Lord,
His praises shall repeat.
