Creation and the Fall and Depravity of Man

Image of tune Hebron (may not be posted yet)

59 (L.M.) John Needham

Look up, ye saints, direct your eyes

To Him who dwells above the skies;

With your glad notes His praise rehearse

Who formed the mighty universe.

He spoke, and from the womb of night

At once sprang up the cheering light;

Him discord heard; and at His nod

Beauty awoke, and spoke the God.

The word He gave; th'obedient sun

Began His glorious race to run:

Nor silver moon, nor stars delay

To glide along th'etherial way.

Teeming with life, air, earth, and sea

Obey th'Almighty's high decree;

To every tribe He gives their food —

Then speaks the whole divinely good.

But to complete the wond'rous plan,

From earth and dust He fashions man;

In man the last, in him the best,

The Maker's image stands confessed.

Lord, while Thy glorious works I view,

Form Thou my heart and soul anew;

Here bid Thy purest light to shine,

Thy beauty glow with charms divine!
