O wondrous God, Who made this world,
Who spread the seas from shore to shore,
Who raised the mountains to the skies,
Your glory lasts forevermore.
O mighty God, Whose outstretched hand
gave to the sun its wondrous light:
You gave the moon its magic glow
and scattered stars throughout the night.

O Holy God, who gave us life,
created creatures great and small,
Lord, we were formed to be like You,
o loving Father of us all.
O gracious God, You made us free,
gave us the will to choose our way;
and when our way leads far from You,
You gently lead us back to stay.

O loving god, You gave Your Son,
the Lamb Whose blood was sacrificed.
He gave Himself, He gave His all;
with love our Savior paid the price.
O Lord, we lift our hearts to You,
our praises loud, our voices strong!
With our whole lives we worship You;
Lord, hear our thankful, joyful song!
