I gaze upon the heavens which you made,

Which by your gentle fingers were designed –

The moon and stars, your artwork there displayed –

And wonder I that you would pay us mind.

Yet there they are, reflections of your love,

The lesser lights you made to rule the night –

They hang and shine amidst the dark above

That even after dusk we may have sight.

Then even more, you sent to Earth for us

A light that shines far brighter than the sun,

In sin’s dark shadow mercy glorious,

Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, God’s Son.

Thus, when I view your handiwork on high,

I see your Love for such a wretch as I.

Gaze upon the Heavens (Psalm 8)
