Grüsse Gottes in der Natur

Grüsse Gottes in der Natur

Groß ist der Herr! Von seiner Macht
Erzählen Himmel, Erd und Meere.
Ihn preist die sternenvolle Nacht,
Die Sonn und aller Sonnen Heere.
Groß ist der Herr!
Ihn rühmt die blühende Natur;
Ihr Schmuck und ihres Segens Menge,
Die Frucht der garbenschweren Flur
Sind seiner Allmacht Lobgesänge.
Groß ist der Herr!

The greatness of God revealed in nature

The Lord is great! Heaven, earth and seas
Proclaim His might.
The starry night praises Him,
And all the multitude of suns.
The Lord is great!
Blossoming nature extols Him;
Nature’s beauty and abundance,
The fruits of the meadow’s heavy laden sheaves
Praise His omnipotence.
The Lord is great!
