1. The heavens God's glory do declare, The skies His handiworks teach;
Day after day their speech pours forth, and knowledge, night after night.
There is no speech nor spoken word. Their voice is never heard;
And yet their voice spreads to all the earth, Their words to the ends of the world.
2. The heavens a tent for the sun He made, Which comes forth like a bride groom,
leaving his chamber glowing bright to run his course with joy.
From heaven's end its rising is, Its circuit to its ends;
And there is nothing from its heat, No nothing is hidden thereof.
3. The law of God is a perfect law, for it converts the soul;
Sure are the sayings of our God, They make the simple wise.
Statutes of God are right and just, And do rejoice the heart.
The Lord's commandments are pure and clear, and light to the mind they impart.
