O’er all this wide and beauteous earth,
One God immortal reigns
His glory, truth, and unity
Link’d by eternal chains.
Let angels join in holy song,
Around His heav’nly throne,
And mortals, with undying hope,
Look up to Him alone.
The gratitude of ev’ry heart
Its incense bears to Thee,
Ruler of the starry sky,
The earth and boundless sea!
Thy mercy shines divinely bright,
A mild, yet glowing beam,
And ev’ry soul that worships Thee,
In love wilt Thou redeem.
Thy blessings fall like morning dews,
To cheer each troubled breast;
Thy presence o’er the universe
For ever is confessed.
‘Tis Thou canst calm the angry waves,
And still the tempest’s roar,
Almighty God! whose glory gilds
Eternity’s bright shore.
