the domed sky bears the Maker’s mark.
New praises sound from day to day
and echo through the knowing dark.
Without a word their songs roll on;
into all lands their voices run.
And with a champion’s strength and grace
from farthest heaven comes forth the sun.
2 God’s perfect law revives the soul;
its precepts make the simple wise.
Its just commands rejoice the heart;
its truth gives light unto the eyes.
Forever shall this law endure:
unblemished, righteous, true, complete.
No gold we ever found so fine,
no honey in the comb more sweet.
3 God’s servant may I ever be:
this world my joy, that word my guide.
O cleanse me, LORD, from secret sin;
deliver me from selfish pride.
Accept my thoughts and words and deeds;
let them find favor in your sight.
For you alone can make me whole,
O LORD, my refuge and my might.
