168. L. M.6l. Watts. God revealed in his Works.
1 Great God! the heavens' well ordered frame Declares the glory of thy name, There thy rich works of wonder shine: A thousand starry beauties there, A thousand radiant marks appear, Of boundless skill and power divine.
2 From night to day, from day to night, The dawning and the dying light Lectures of heavenly wisdom read; With silent eloquence they raise Our thoughts to our Creator's praise, And neither sound nor language need.
3 Yet thy divine instructions run Far as the journeys of the sun: Thy light and truth are known abroad; We see thy smile in Nature's face, And in the pages of thy grace We read the glories of our God.
