The Lord of Heaven reigns,
Eternal and sublime;
All limit he disdains,
Of power, space, or time.
Though ages take their flight,
No change in him it makes,
Whose raiment is the light,
Whose voice in thunder speaks.
Stars, with his essence fraught,
In harmony unite,
To praise the hand that wrought,
The orbs of day and night.
As ocean ebbs and flows,
Swayed by its viewless guide,
In tempest or repose,
God still is glorified.
The elements arise,
His judgments to fulfil;
The guilty to chastise,
Who dare oppose his will.
What says the restless flood?
What says the raging flame?
If rightly understood,
God’s’ vengeance they proclaim.
Oh Lord! let me not fail,
In trials of the soul;
Let perfect faith prevail,
And pious self-control.
Desert not thy frail charge,
But with a father’s care
My heart and mind enlarge,
To bear and to forbear.
