The composer set 1 verse of a hymn by Richard Mant and a couple of verses from Psalm 65.
Praise the Lord! ye heav'ns adore him;
Praise him angels, in the height;
Sun and moon, rejoice before him;
Praise him, all ye stars of light.
Praise the Lord! for he has spoken;
Worlds his mighty voice obeyed;
Laws which never shall be broken
For their guidance he has made.

Thou visitest the earth, and blessest it.
Thou crownest the year with thy goodness.
