Beholding God, Creator God, Dependence, Praise, The Creation, The Power of God, The Splendour of God, Trust



Verse 1
O worship the King, all glorious above
O gratefully sing his power and his love
Our shield and defender, the Ancient of Days
Pavilioned in splendour and girded with praise

Verse 2
O tell of his might, O sing of his grace
Whose robe is the light, whose canopy space
His chariots of wrath the deep thunderclouds form
And dark is his path on the wings of the storm

Verse 3
The earth, with its store of wonders untold
Almighty, thy power hath founded of old
Established it fast by a changeless decree
And round it hath cast, like a mantle, the sea

Verse 4
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
