1 The heavens declare God's glory,
Their grandeur tells his worth;
By day and night, though silent,
Their witness rings the earth.
The sun, a radiant bridegroom,
Steps forth with eager feet
To race across the heavens
And flood the world with heat.

2 Your law, O LORD, is perfect,
Its power revives the soul;
What joy and light come streaming
From truth so pure and whole!
Your everlasting statutes
Impart a holy fear:
Far sweeter they than honey,
Than finest gold more dear.

3 They warn of mortal dangers
And lead to great reward;
Keep me from hidden errors
And wilful sins, O LORD.
So may my speech and thinking
Find favour in your sight,
My Rock and my Redeemer,
My Lord, my soul's true light.
