The Heaven’s Declare God’s Glory
By June Stein
The heavens declare God’s glory!
The sky proclaims the work of His hands…
Night after night displaying knowledge,
That all may understand.
There is no speech or language,
Where their voice cannot be heard,
Their voice goes out into all the earth;
Their words to the end of the world.
The law of the Lord is perfect,
It revives the soul,
His statutes are trustworthy truth,
They make the simple wise,
And will instruct the youth.
The precepts of the Lord are right,
Giving joy to the heart,
His commands are radiant,
Giving light to the eyes,
And true confidence imparts.
The fear of the Lord is pure,
His ordinances, righteous and sure,
More pleasing than gold,
Than much gold that is pure.
Sweeter are they than honey,
By them, are His servants warned,
The wise will find that in keeping them,
There is great reward!
Who can discern my errors, Lord?
Forgive my hidden faults,
Keep me also from wilful sins,
Your Name and Glory I will exalt…
O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.
[Based on Psalm 19]
