Hymn 94Play music
1. Immortal, invisible,God only wise,
In light inaccessible hid from our eyes:
Most blessed, most glorious,the ancient of days, Almighty,victorious,Thy great name we praise.
2 Unresting, unhasting, and silent as light,
Nor wanting, nor wasting, Thou rulest in might;
Thy justice like mountains high soaring above,
Thy clouds which are fountains of goodness and love.
3 To all life Thou givest, to both great and small:
In all life Thou livest, the true life of all;
We blossom and flourish as leaves on the tree,
And wither and perish; but nought changeth Thee.
4 Great Father of glory, pure Father of light,
Thine angels adore Thee, unveiled is their sight;
All laud we would render: O help us to see
'Tis only the splendour of light hideth Thee.
