Sir Robert Grant, 1833
Public servant of the British Empire, served in Parliament and as Governor of Bombay (now Mumbai, India).
LYONS, Johann M. Haydn (1737-1806); arranged by William Gardiner, 1815
Based heavily on Psalm 104:1-7:
1 Praise the Lord, my soul.
Lord my God, you are very great;
you are clothed with splendor and majesty.
2 The Lord wraps himself in light as with a garment;
he stretches out the heavens like a tent
3 and lays the beams of his upper chambers on their waters.
He makes the clouds his chariot
and rides on the wings of the wind.
4 He makes winds his messengers,
flames of fire his servants.
5 He set the earth on its foundations;
it can never be moved.
6 You covered it with the watery depths as with a garment;
the waters stood above the mountains.
7 But at your rebuke the waters fled,
at the sound of your thunder they took to flight (NIV)
The Lutheran Hymnal #17 (but sung to HANOVER)
