221. My God, how wonderful Thou art



Christopher Tye, 1553

Frederick W. Faber, 1849

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 wonderful, 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.
