Let the Lord be ever praised!
Ever loved and glorified;
Though his mighty hand be raised,
Sons of earth! to bless or chide.
Wisdom, Justice, Truth, and Grace,
Are his attributes sublime;
These are seen throughout all space,
These are felt throughout all time.
Contemplate oh! mortal man,
Heaven and its starry host;
Worlds of light, whose perfect plan,
Leaves the soul in wonder lost.
Turn and view the elements,
In their calmness or their strife;
Ocean, that appals the sense,
Air, that ministers to life;
Earth, that while thou livest, yields
All her fruitful breast contains;
When thou diest, kindly shields
All of thee that then remains.
Last, the restless flame behold,
As it towers to the clouds;
Bursting through its smoky fold,
Like thy spirit from its shrouds.
Seest thou not in all of these
Emanations pure and bright,
From that power, whose decrees
Can alone bring bloom or blight?
Seek not then, whate’er thy state,
Whether lofty or obscure,
Mysteries to penetrate,
But be silent and adore.
