1. Father, how wide Thy glories shine!How high Thy wonders rise!Known through the earth by thousand signs,By thousands through the skies.
2. Those mighty orbs proclaim Thy power,Their motions speak Thy skill,And on the wings of every hourWe read Thy presence still.
3. But when we view Thy strange designTo save rebellious worms,Where justice and compassion joinIn their divinest forms.
4. There the whole Deity is known,Nor dare a creature guessWhich of the glories brightest shone,The justice or the grace.
5. O may I bear some humble partIn truth’s immortal song.Wonder and joy shall tune my heart,And love command my tongue.
