The Heavens Resound

The heavens resound with His praises eternal
In might and glory they combine
To tell His name through earth and ocean
That man may hear the Word divine.

Starry starry night over the northern coast of Chile

He holds the sun in blue vaulted heaven,
He plants His foot upon the world;
The myriad stars bow in willing subjection;
The universe His hand unfurl'd,
The universe His hand unfurl'd.

The Lord is God!
He is King of creation;
In His right hand He holds them all;
His children, we, in love and devotion,
Before His might and power fall.

Oh Father, hear!
We, Thy sons, bring our blessings;
Our prayerful thanks to Thee we raise.
The heavens resound, break,
O earth into glory,
To serve! adore! and sing His praise!
To serve! adore! and sing His praise!
