To Your Creator God

To your Creator God,
Your great Preserver, raise,
Ye creatures of His hand,
Your highest notes of praise.
Let ev’ry voice
Proclaim His power,
His name adore,
And loud rejoice.

Let all the creatures join
To celebrate His name,
And all their various powers
Assist th’exalted theme.
Let nature raise
From every tongue
A general song
Of grateful praise.

But oh! from human tongues
Should nobler praises flow;
And ev’ry thankful heart
With warm devotion glow.
Your voices raise,
Ye highly blest
Above the rest;
Declare His praise.
