Most wonderful of all things isAuthor: Nikolai F. S. Grundtvig; Translator: Jens C. Aaberg (1945)
Published in 1 hymnal
Most wonderful of all things is
The kingdom Jesus founded.
Its glory, treasure, peace and bliss
No tongue has fully sounded.
Invisible as mind and soul,
And yet of light the fountain,
It sheds its light from pole to pole
Like beacons from a mountain.
Its secret is the word of God,
Which works what it proposes,
Which lowers mountains high and broad
And clothes the wastes with roses.
Though foes against the kingdom rage
With hatred and derision,
God spreads its reign from age to age,
And brings it to fruition.
Its glory rises like a morn
When waves at sunrise glitter,
Or as in June the golden corn
While birds above it twitter.
It is the glory of the King
Who bore affliction solely
That he the crown of life might bring
To sinners poor and lowly.
And when His advent comes to pass,
The Christian’s strife is ended,
What now we see as in a glass
Shall then be comprehended.
Then shall the kingdom bright appear
In glory true and vernal,
And usher in the golden year
Of peace and joy eternal.
