Hymn 5Play music
O Lord, our Lord, how excellent
Thy name on earth is known;
Thy glory in the firmament,
How wonderfully shown!
When I behold the heavens on high,
The work of Thy right hand,
The moon and stars amid the sky,
Thy lights in every land-
Lord, what is man that Thou should'st deign
On him Thy love to place,
As king and priest with Christ to reign,
And see him face to face?
O Lord, how excellent Thy name!
How manifold Thy ways!
Let time Thy saving truth proclaim,
Eternity Thy praise.
