1 High in the heav'ns, eternal God,
thy goodness in full glory shines:
thy truth shall break through ev'ry cloud
that veils and darkens thy designs.
2 Forever firm thy justice stands,
as mountains their foundations keep;
wise are the wonders of thy hands;
thy judgments are a mighty deep.
3 From the provisions of thy house
we shall be fed with sweet repast;
there mercy like a river flows,
and brings salvation to our taste.
4 Life, like a fountain rich and free,
springs from the presence of the Lord;
and in thy light our souls shall see
the glories promised in thy Word.
