He Pitched a Tent for the Sun


Psalm 19

New International Version (NIV)

For the director of music. A psalm of David.

1.  The heavens declare the glory of God;
    the skies proclaim the work of his hands 
2.  Day after day they pour forth speech;
    night after night they reveal knowledge.
3.  They have no speech, they use no words;
    no sound is heard from them. 
4.  Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
    their words to the ends of the world.
    In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.
5.  It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,
    like a champion rejoicing to run his course.
6.   It rises at one end of the heavens
    and makes its circuit to the other;
    nothing is deprived of its warmth.
