The spacious earth around, While all the armies of the sky Conspire to raise the sound.

And in his grace confide ;
Than all your works beside.

Ye heavens, reflect it to the ground. 2 0, may I reach that happy place

Beyond the reach of harm.
Or fainting shall not die;

Faith sees him always near, A guide, a glory, a defence,
Then what have you to sear?
