Verse 1
Begin, my tongue, some heavenly theme,
Awake, my voice, and sing
The mighty works or mightier name
Of our eternal king.

Verse 2
Tell of his wondrous faithfulness,
And sound his power abroad;
Sing the sweet promise of his grace,
The quickening word of God.

Verse 3
His every word of grace is strong
As that which built the skies;
The voice that rolls the stars along
Speaks all the promises.

Verse 4
Now shall my fainting heart rejoice
To know thy favour sure;
I trust the all-creating voice,
And faith desires no more.
