I Sing the Mighty Power of God

Thinking about the “Expelled” movie I saw tonight, I was inspired in the car on the way home listening to a beautiful hymn declaring how wondrously the Creation testifies to the glory of the Creator.

Psalm 19:1 states, “The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork.”

Here are the lyrics of this great hymn.

I Sing the Mighty Power of God

Words: Isaac Watts, Divine and Moral Songs for Children, 1715.

I sing the mighty power of God, that made the mountains rise,
That spread the flowing seas abroad, and built the lofty skies.
I sing the wisdom that ordained the sun to rule the day;
The moon shines full at God’s command, and all the stars obey.

I sing the goodness of the Lord, who filled the earth with food,
Who formed the creatures through the Word, and then pronounced them good.
Lord, how Thy wonders are displayed, where’er I turn my eye,
If I survey the ground I tread, or gaze upon the sky.

There’s not a plant or flower below, but makes Thy glories known,
And clouds arise, and tempests blow, by order from Thy throne;
While all that borrows life from Thee is ever in Thy care;
And everywhere that we can be, Thou, God art present there.
