35 - With Songs and Honors

With songs and honors sounding loud,
Address the Lord on high;
Over the heavens He spreads His clouds,
And waters veil the sky.
He sends His shower of blessing down
To cheer the plains below;
He makes the grass the mountains crown,
And corn in valleys grow.
His steady counsels change the face
Of the declining year;
He bids the sun cut short his race,
And wintry days appear.
He sends His word, the flying cloud,
Obey His mighty word:
He calls the warmer gales to blow,
And bids the spring return.
The changing wind, the flying clouds,
Obey His mighty word:
With songs and honors sounding loud
Praise ye the sovereign Lord!
