I. “O all ye Works of God”
By Richard Wilton (1827–1903)
 
O all ye Works of the Lord; bless ye the Lord, praise Him and magnify Him for ever.

O ALL ye Works of God most High,
  Bless ye the Lord and praise His Name;
  Whose hand has built this goodly frame
Of emerald earth and sapphire sky;
And fashioned man to magnify        5
  His love, and spread abroad His fame:
O all ye Works of God most High,
  Bless ye the Lord and praise His Name.
 
Ye mighty suns through space that fly,
  Ye glow-worms with your tiny flame,        10
  From the same source of light ye came
To shine before your Maker’s eye:
O all ye Works of God most High,
  Bless ye the Lord and praise His Name.
