1 My God, how wonderful you are;
your majesty, how bright!
How beautiful your mercy seat
in depths of burning light!
2 How wonderful, how beautiful
the sight of you must be,
your endless wisdom, boundless power,
and awesome purity!
3 O how I fear you, living God,
with deepest, tenderest fears,
and worship you with trembling hope
and penitential tears!
4 Yet I may love you too, O Lord,
almighty as you are,
for you have stooped to ask of me
the love of my poor heart.
5 No earthly father loves like you,
no mother half so mild
bears and forbears as you have done
with me, your sinful child.
6 Father of Jesus, Love divine,
great King upon your throne,
what joy to see you as you are
and worship you alone!
