The heavens were made by the Word of the Lord,
And all of the universe thus had its birth.
Let God by His creatures be greatly adored
In all of the heavens and all of the earth!
Let all of the earth fear the Lord and give praise:
Our God is the Author of “natural law.”
He spoke and created all things in six days:
Let all those in heaven and earth stand in awe!
Let all of the earth hear the counsel of God;
The Lord brings to nothing the counsel of nations.
His counsel shall stand; let creation applaud!
The thoughts of His heart are to all generations.
O Lord, our Creator and Counselor too,
How rightly we tremble in awe of Your power,
And yet by Your counsel we draw near to You
To find grace and truth to sustain us each hour.
