The day is thine, the night also is thine: thou hast prepared the light and the sun.
Thou hast set all the borders of the earth: thou hast made summer and winter.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

74:16 the light and the sun. Note that the “light” prepared by God is distinct from “the sun.” God first called for light energy, then light generators (Genesis 1:5, 14).

74:17 borders of the earth. God established both the boundaries of the lands and of the nations to occupy those lands, and even the inclination of the earth’s axis to control their seasons.

Psalm 75 (title) Al-taschith. On the meaning of Al-taschith and “A Psalm or Song,” see footnotes to Psalm 57 and 66.
