1 My God, how wonderful thou art,
thy majesty how bright!
How beautiful thy mercy seat
in depths of burning light!
2 How wonderful, how beautiful
the sight of thee must be -
thine endless wisdom, boundless pow'r,
and awesome purity!
3 No earthly father loves like thee;
no mother, e’er so mild,
bears and forbears as thou hast done
with me, thy sinful child.
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 My God, how wonderful thou art,
thou everlasting friend!
On thee I stay my trusting heart
till faith in vision end.
