311. God, my King, thy might confessing


Gotha, 1715

Psalm 145

Richard Mant, 1824


God, my King, thy might confessing,

Ever will I bless thy Name;

Day by day thy throne addressing,

Still will I thy praise proclaim.

Honor great our God befitteth;

Who his majesty can reach?

Age to age his works transmitteth,

Age to age his power shall teach.

They shall talk of all thy glory,

On thy might and greatness dwell,

Speak of thy dread acts the story,

And thy deeds of wonder tell.

Nor shall fail from memory's treasure

Works by love and mercy wrought,

Works of love surpassing measure,

Works of mercy passing thought.

Full of kindness and compassion,

Slow to anger, vast in love,

God is good to all creation;

All his works his goodness prove.

All thy works, O Lord, shall bless thee;

Thee shall all thy saints adore:

King supreme shall they confess thee,

And proclaim thy sovereign power.

Praise the Father, earth and heaven,

Praise the Son, the Spirit praise,

As it was, and is, be given

Glory through eternal days.
