65. My God, How Wonderful Thou Art

1 My God, how wonderful thou art,
thy majesty, how bright,
how beautiful thy mercy seat
in depths of burning light!
How dread are thine eternal years,
O everlasting Lord:
by prostrate spirits day and night
incessantly adored!

2 How wonderful, how beautiful,
the sight of thee must be,
thine endless wisdom, boundless power,
and awesome purity!
O how I fear thee, living God,
with deepest, tenderest fears,
and worship thee with trembling hope
and penitential tears!

3 Yet, I may love thee too, O Lord,
Aamighty as thou art,
for thou hast stooped to ask of me
the love of my poor heart.
No earthly father loves like thee;
no mother, e’er so mild,
bears and forbears as thou hast done
with me, thy sinful child.

4 My God, how wonderful thou art,
thy majesty, how bright,
how beautiful thy mercy seat
in depths of burning light!
Father of Jesus, Love divine,
great King upon thy throne,
what joy to see thee as thou art,
and worship thee alone!
