Original text and translations
Hark from the skies! A dreadful sound,
See how the clouds spread o'er the skies,
The thunders roar and shake the ground,
And fill all creatures with surprise.
The flaming streams of lightning play,
Conveyed by God's eternal hand,
At his command the storms obey,
And flash along at his command.
