Scripture: Genesis 1
Theme: God

1.  I sing the mighty power of God
    That made the mountains rise;
    That spread the flowing seas abroad
    And built the lofty skies.
    I sing the wisdom that ordained
    The sun to rule the day;
    The moon shines full at God's command,
    And all the stars obey.

2.  I sing the goodness of the Lord
    That filled the earth with food;
    God formed the creatures with a word
    And then pronounced them good.
    Lord, how Thy wonders are displayed,
    Where'er I turn my eyes;
    If I survey the ground I tread,
    Or gaze upon the skies!

3.  There's not a plant or flower below
    But makes Thy glories known;
    And clouds arise, and tempests blow,
    By order from Thy throne;
    While all that borrows life from Thee
    Is ever in Thy care,
    And everywhere that we can be,
    Thou, God, art present there.
