Holy are you,
clothed in bright mystery,
throned above all things in heaven and earth!
Great is your power,
hurling the comets,
raising up mountains and filling the seas!

Holy, mysterious and mighty are you:
all things created shall praise you!

2 Sovereign are you,
ruling in wisdom,
guiding your creatures in justice and truth;
through desert lands
you brought your people,
leading by fire and a pillar of clouds. [Refrain]

2 Gracious are you,
God of forgiveness,
pardoning those who have wondered away.
Yet you are just,
marking wrongdoing,
chiding, correcting in wisdom and power. [Refrain]
