As morning breaks the skies

Psalm 8


As morning breaks the skies

And brings the day to birth,

Praise for your mighty name shall rise

Through your created earth.


Your glory is declared

In heavens vast expanse.

The moon and stars were all prepared

By Sovereign choice not chance.


With wonders you have made

How can mankind compare?

In him your glory is displayed.

You trust things to his care.


As we our children raise

To learn of all your fame,

Their voices join with ours in praise

Of your majestic name.
