1
Maker of earth and heaven,
 
Whose arm upholds creation,
 
To Thee we raise the voice of praise,
 
And bend in adoration.
 
We praise the power that made us,
 
We praise the love that blesses;
 
While every day that rolls away
 
Thy gracious care confesses.
Acts 17:24; Colossians 1:16; John 1:3; Hebrews 1:3; Psalm 119:73
2
Though trials and affliction
 
May cast their shadows o'er us,
 
Thy love doth throw a heavenly glow
 
Of light on all before us;
 
That love has smiled from heaven,
 
To cheer our path of sadness,
 
And lead the way through earth's dark day,
 
To realms of joy and gladness.
Psalm 34:19; Psalm 16:11
3
The light of love and glory
 
Has shone through Christ our Saviour,
 
The Crucified—who lived and died,
 
That we might live forever.
 
And since Thy great compassion
 
Thus brings Thy children near Thee,
 
May we to praise devote our days,
 
And keep forever near Thee.
