The Heavens God's Glory Do Declare
Words: Psalm 19 The Scottish Psalter
1 The heav'ns God's glory do declare, the skies his hand-works preach: Day after day their speech pours forth and night does knowledge teach. There is no speech nor tongue to which their voice does not extend: Their voice is gone through all the earth, their words to the world's end. 2 In them he set the sun a tent; Who, bridegroom-like, forth goes From's chamber, as a strong man doth to run his race rejoice. From heav'n's end is his going forth, circling to th' end again; And there is nothing from his heat that hidden doth remain. God's law is perfect, and converts the soul from sin and lies: God's testimony is most sure, and makes the simple wise. The statutes of the Lord are right, and do rejoice the heart: The Lord's command is pure, and doth light to the eyes impart.
