1 My God, how wonderful thou art,
thy majesty how bright,
How beautiful thy mercy-seat,
In depths of burning light!
2 Wondrous are thine eternal years,
O everlasting Lord,
by holy angels day and night
3 Oh, how I fear thee, living God,
With deepest, tenderest fears,
And worship thee with trembling hope,
And penitential tears!
4 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.
5 No earthly father loves like thee,
No mother, half so mild,
Bears and forbears as thou hast done,
With me, thy sinful child.
6 How wonderful, how beautiful,
the sight of thee will be,
thine endless wisdom, boundless power,
and awesome purity!
