Author: Taiwanese hymn Trans. Boris and Clare Anderson, 1981
Scripture: Psalm 96:3-9 Psalms 148
1. God created heaven and earth, All things perfect brought to birth; God's great power made dark and light, Earth revolving day and night. 2. Let us praise God's mercy great, All our needs that love await; God, who fashions all that lives, To each one a blessing gives. 3. God is one, will ever be: Idols are mere vanity; Handmade gods of wood and clay Cannot help us when we pray. 4. But God's grace beyond compare Saves us all from death's despair; So earth's creatures small and great Give thanks for that blessed state.
