Verse 1My God, how wonderful thou art,
Thy majesty how bright,
How beautiful thy mercy-seat,
In depths of burning light!
Verse 2How dread are thine eternal years,
O everlasting Lord,
By prostrate spirits day and night
Verse 3How wonderful, how beautiful,
The sight of thee must be,
Thine endless wisdom, boundless power,
And aweful purity!
Verse 4O how I fear thee, living God,
With deepest, tenderest fears,
And worship thee with trembling hope
And penitential tears!
Verse 5Yet 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.
Verse 6No earthly father loves like thee,
No mother, e'er so mild,
Bears and forbears as thou hast done
With me, thy sinful child.
Verse 7Father of Jesus, love's reward,
What rapture it will be,
Prostrate before thy throne to lie,
And gaze and gaze on Thee!
