HYMN 2n.
217
The spacious firmament on high, With all
the blue e-the-rial sky. And spangled heavens.
a shining frame. Their great o-ri-gi-nal proclaim.
The unwearied sun, from day to day. Does
his Cre-a - tor s power display; And publishes to
every land, The work of an almighty hand.
2 Soon as the evening shades prevail.
The moon takes up the wondrous tale,
And nightly to the listening earth,
Repeats the story of her birth;
AVhile all the stars that round her burn,
And all the planets in their turn,
Confirm the tidings as they roll.
And spread the truth from pole to pole.
3 What though in solemn silence all,
Move round the dark terrestrial ball?
What though no real voice nor sound.
Amidst their radiant orbs be found?
In reason's ear they all rejoice.
And utter forth a glorious voice,
For ever singing as they shine:
»The hand that made us is divine."
