He spoke and thro’ the gloom profound
Effulgent light its glory shed;
He breathed and all the earth around
With living myriads soon was spread.
How vast, how holy was the love,
That blest us with these gifts divine,
While angels, in the choir above,
Sung praises round His heavenly shrine.
Nature in primal beauty glow’d,
Her incense, too, to heaven ascending;
On every side rich blessings flow’d,
His mercy with His goodness blending.
Still o’er these works of grandeur rose
A radiant beam — a heavenly ray —
The holy rest, the calm repose,
That sanctified the Sabbath-day.
In sacred song our voices swelling,
Let hallelujahs peal around,
While seraphs, near His starry dwelling,
Shall echo back the grateful sound.
