I Sing the Mighty Power of God

Words: Isaac Watts, Di­vine and Mor­al Songs for Child­ren, 1715

I sing the almighty power of God,

That made the mountains rise,

That spread the flowing seas abroad,

And built the lofty skies.

 

I sing the wisdom that ordained

The sun to rule the day;

The moon shines full at His command,

And all the stars obey.

 

I sing the goodness of the Lord,

That filled the earth with food;

He formed the creatures with His Word,

And then pronounced them good.

 

Lord! how Thy wonders are displayed

Where’er I turn mine eye!

If I survey the ground I tread,

Or gaze upon the sky!

 

There’s not a plant or flower below

But makes Thy glories known;

And clouds arise and tempests blow,

By order from Thy throne.

 

Creatures that borrow life from Thee

Are subject to Thy care;

There’s not a place where we can flee,

But God is present there.

From Scripture and Music.com:

Although he never married, Isaac Watts always loved children and wrote much for them. In 1715 he wrote a book of songs especially for young people titled Divine Songs for Children. This hymnal, the first ever written exclusively for children, includes the text for “I Sing Mighty Power of God.”
