His glory all creation doth proclaim;
A Spirit - love and light, the Holy One -
Who is, who was, who it to come, the Same!
- The only glorious, the eternal God,
- Who ever lived before beginnings were!
- All heaven's constellations pale before
- The glory of the One who set them there!
- The Triune God, almighty, yet unseen;
- The ever holy, holy, holy One
- Whose word existence to creation gave,
- When dwelling in eternity alone!
In Christ revealed, the everlasting God!
To learn Thy wisdom, search Thy matchless grace;
To worship Thee, as saints redeemed by blood!
To see Thy glory in the face of Christ,
And without let enjoy - in heav'n above,
In realms of cloudless light and joy and peace -
Thine own unending, changeless, perfect love!
