39. The Witness of Nature to God



1. The heavens in their splendor declare
The might and the glory of God;
For day unto day speaks His praise,
And night tells His wisdom abroad. 

2. They speak not with audible word,
Yet clear is the message they send;
Their witness goes out through the earth,
Their word to the world's farthest end. 

3. Forsaking his tent in the sky,
Arrayed as a bridegroom, the sun
Comes forth in his glorious strength,
Rejoicing his circuit to run. 

4. He tells through the length of the heavens
His Maker's great wisdom and might,
And nothing in all of the earth
Is hid from his heat and his light.
