The heavens Lord, declare your glory;
The earth proclaims your majesty!
We marvel at your wondrous grace,
For an insignificant human race.
You form us from dust of earth,
You give us life, you give us breath,
You make us your children,
Little lower than beings in heaven.
You protect infants from danger,
You silence the foe and avenger;
You lavish us with endless care,
And love beyond compare.
You crown us with glory and honour;
And bestow on us your favour
To rule over beasts, birds of the air,
Fish and sea creatures everywhere.
The universe reflects your glory,
Creation affirms your sovereignty
With all nature in one accord,
We praise your name O Lord!
