If I have looked at the sun when it shone Or the moon going in splendor,

The heavens are telling of the glory of God; And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.
Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, and the one who formed you from the womb, "I, the LORD, am the maker of all things, Stretching out the heavens by Myself And spreading out the earth all alone,
