My God, how Wonderful Thou art

Habakkuk_3-19: The LORD God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds' feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places.

Habakkuk_3-19: The LORD God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds’ feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places.

My God, how Wonderful Thou art,

Thy Majesty how bright!

How beautiful Thy mercy -seat,

In depths of burning light!

 

 

 

 

 

How dread are Thine eternal years,

O everlasting Lord,

By prostrate spirits day and night

Incessantly adored!

 

 

 

 

 

 

How beautiful, how beautiful,

The sight of Thee must be,

Thine endless wisdom, boundless power

And awful purity!

 

 

 

 

 

 

O how I fear Thee, living God,

With deepest, tenderest fears,

And worship Thee with trembling hope,

 And penitential tears

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yet I may love Thee too, O Lord,

Almighty as Thou art,

For Thou hast stooped to ask of me

The love of my poor heart.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

No earthly father loves like Thee;

No mother, ever so mild,

Bears and forbears as Thou hast done

With me, Thy sinful child.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Father of Jesus, love’s reward,

What rapture will it be

Prostrate before Thy throne to lie,

And gaze, and gaze on Thee!
