JTTH: I Sing the Mighty Power of God (Part One)

This week we’re going to look at the lyrics of our fourth hymn in this series, I Sing the Mighty Power of God, written by Issac Watts.

I Sing the Mighty Power of God

By Issac Watts

I sing the mighty 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

Lord, how Thy wonders are displayed

Where’er I turn my eye

If I survey the ground I tread

Or gaze upon the sky!

There’s not a plant or flower below

But makes Thy glories known

And clouds arise and tempests blow

By order from Thy throne

While all that borrows life from Thee

Is ever in Thy care

And ev’rywhere that man can be

Thou, God, art present there
