"We Sing the Almighty Power of God" by Isaac Watts, 1674-1748 Text From: THE HANDBOOK TO THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1942)p.38 1. We sing the almighty power of God, Who bade the mountains rise, Who spread the flowing seas abroad And built the lofty skies. 2. We sing the wisdom that ordained The sun to rule the day; The moon shines, too, at His command, And all the stars obey. 3. We sing the goodness of the Lord, Who fills the earth with food, Who formed His creatures by a word And then pronounced them good. 4. Lord, how Thy wonders are displayed Where'er we turn our eyes, Whene'er we view the ground we tread Or gaze upon the skies! 5. There's not a plant nor flower below But makes Thy glories known; And clouds arise and tempests blow By order from Thy throne. 6. On Thee each moment we depend; If Thou withdraw, we die. Oh, may we ne'er that God offend Who is forever nigh!This text was converted to ascii format for Project Wittenberg by Debbie Harris and is in the public domain.
