Theme: God

1.  Many and great, O God, are Thy things,
    Maker of earth and sky;
    Thy hands have set the heavens with stars,
    Thy fingers spread the mountains and plains.
    Lo, at Thy word the waters were formed;
    Deep seas obey Thy voice.

2.  Grant unto us communion with Thee,
    Thou star-abiding One;
    Come unto us and dwell with us:
    With Thee are found the gifts of life.
    Bless us with life that has no end,
    Eternal life with Thee.
