Hymn 130Play music
1. Thou,the great, eternal God,
Art high above our thought;
Worthy to be feared, adored,
By all Thy hands have wrought;
None can with Thyself compare;
Thy glory fills both earth and sky;
We, and all Thy creatures, are as nothing in Thine eye.
2. Of Thy great unbounded power, to Thee the praise we give Infinitely great, and more than heart can e'er conceive;
When Thou ·wilt to work proceed,
Thy purpose firm none can withstand,
Frustrate Thy determined deed,
or stay Thy mighty hand.
3. Thou, O God, art wise alone;
Thy counsel doth excel;
Wonderful Thy works we own,
Thy ways unsearchable;
Who can sound the mystery,
Thy judgements' deep abyss explain?
Thou whose eyes in darkness see,
and search the heart of man!
