Isaac Watts on Creation and Providence

I SING the almighty 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 His command 
And all the stars obey. 

I sing the goodness of the Lord 
That filled the earth with food; 
He formed the creatures with His word. 
And then pronounced them good.

There's not a plant or flower below
But makes His glories known.; 
And clouds arise, and tempests blow, 
By order from His throne.

Creatures, as numerous as they be,
Are subject to His care; 
There's not a place where we can flee 
But God is present there.

His hand is my perpetual guard,
 He keeps me with His eye; 
Why should I then forget the Lord, 
 Who is for ever nigh? 


Isaac Watts
(Divine Songs for Children - Song 2)
