I Sing the Mighty Power of God
Words: Isaac Watts, "Divine and Moral Songs for
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, who filled the earth with food, Who formed the creatures through the Word, and then pronounced them good. Lord, how Thy wonders are displayed, wherever I turn my eye, If I survey the ground I tread, or gaze upon the sky. 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.
We usually sing this song to "Ellacombe," which is the music playing for this page. However, another tune named Forrest Green is often used with these words. (The webmaster here personally prefers "Forrest Green", but I love the words so much that I like to sing them to other tunes to keep them fresh.)
