1 Eternal God! Almighty Cause
Of earth, and seas, and worlds unknown!
All things are subject to Thy laws;
All things depend on Thee alone.
2 Thy glorious being singly stands,
Of all within itself possessed;
By none controlled in Thy commands,
And in Thyself completely blessed.
3 Worship to Thee alone belongs,
Worship to Thee alone we give;
Thine be our hearts, and Thine our songs,
And to Thy glory may we live.
4 O, spread Thy truth through every land,
In every heart Thy love be known;
Subdue the world to Thy command,
And, as Thou art, reign God alone.
