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 eyes.

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 the determined deed,
Or stay the almighty hand.

Thou, our God, art wise alone;
Thy counsel doth excel;
Wonderful Thy works we own,
Thy ways unsearchable;
Who can sound the mystery,
Thy judgments’ deep abyss explain,
Thine, whose eyes in darkness see,
And search the heart of man?
