Eledumare, the Great Creator

O Eledumare, great Creator divine,

Whose power and wisdom made all things in time,

The sun, the moon, the stars that brightly shine.

You set the earth on its axis to align,

And gave the oceans their ebb and flow's chime,

O Eledumare, great Creator divine.

You formed the mountains and valleys to incline,

And gave the rivers their course to unwind,

The sun, the moon, the stars that brightly shine.

The wind and rain, the seasons in their design,

All work in harmony with a purpose in line,

O Eledumare, great Creator divine.

Your grace and mercy forever will shine,

Your love and goodness we'll forever enshrine,

The sun, the moon, the stars that brightly shine,

O Eledumare, great Creator divine.
