2251. The Heav'ns Resoundeth

The heav’ns resound with His praises eternal,
In might and glory they combine,
To tell His name through earth and the oceans
That man may hear the word divine.
He holds all the suns in the blue vaulted heavens,
He plants His foot upon the world.
The myriad stars bow in willing subjection,
The universe His hand unfurled,
The universe His hand unfurled.
