O God How Great Thy Glory Is


O God, how great thy glory is!
Thy wondrous ways, O who can know?
O hight immense! what words suffice
Thy countless attributes to show?

Greatness unspeakable is thine,
Greatness whose undimished ray,
When short-lived worlds are lost, shall shine,
When earth and heaven are fled away.

Unchangeable, all-perfect Lord,
Essential life’s unbounded sea,
What lives and moves, lives by thy word;
It lives, and moves, and is, from thee.

High is thy power above all hight;
Whate’er thy will decrees, is done;
Thy wisdom, equal to thy might,
Only to thee, O God, is known!
