                                  Text From:
                              THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL
                 (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)

        1. Oh, worship the King
        All glorious above:
        Oh, gratefully sing
        His power and His love,
        Our Shield and Defender,
        The Ancient of Days,
        Pavilioned in splendor
        And girded with praise!

        2. Oh, tell of His might,
        Oh, sing of His grace,
        Whose robe is the light,
        Whose canopy space!
        His chariots of wrath
        The deep thunder-clouds form,
        And dark is His path
        On the wings of the storm.

        3. This earth, with its store
        Of wonders untold,
        Almighty, Thy power
        Hath founded of old,
        Hath stablished it fast
        By a changeless decree,
        And round it hath cast,
        Like a mantle, the sea.

        4. Thy bountiful care
        What tongues can recite?
        It breathes in the air,
        It shines in the light,
        It streams from the hills,
        It descends to the plain,
        And sweetly distils
        In the dew and the rain.

        5. Frail children of dust
        And feeble as frail,
        In Thee do we trust
        Nor find Thee to fail.
        Thy mercies, how tender,
        How firm to the end,
        Our maker, Defender,
        Redeemer, and Friend!

        6. O measureless Might,
        Ineffable Love,
        While angels delight
        To hymn Thee above,
        Thy humbler creation,
        Though feeble their lays,
        With true adoration
        Shall sing to Thy praise.
