1 O Lord, our Lord, your beauty fills the skies,
your name through all the earth is majesty:
from children's lips shall perfect praise arise
to silence every boasting enemy.

2 When I behold the worlds that you designed,
the moon and stars your fingers set in place,
I marvel that you care for humankind
for honor made, in glory crowned with grace:

3 Through all the earth, across the spreading land,
upon the air and in the deepest sea,
we rule the creatures of your mighty hand
O Lord, our Lord, your name is majesty!
