Heaven and Earth, and Sea and Air – a doxology

Heaven, Earth, Sea, and Air

Heaven and earth, and sea and air,
All their Maker’s praise declare;
Wake, my soul, awake and sing:
Now thy grateful praises bring.

See the glorious orb of day
Breaking through the clouds his way;
Moon and stars with silvery light
Praise Him through the silent night.

See how He hath everywhere
Made this earth so rich and fair;
Hill and vale and fruitful land,
All things living, show His hand.

Lord, great wonders workest Thou!
To Thy sway all creatures bow;
Write Thou deeply in my heart
What I am, and what Thou art.
Amen.

Written by Joachim Neander (1650-1680) and inspired by Psalm 19, from The Hymnbook, a Presbyterian hymnal published in 1955.
