PRAISE OF DIVINE LOVE




O worship the King,
All-glorious above;
O gratefully sing
His power and His love;
Our shield and defender,
The ancient of days,
Pavilioned in splendour,
And girded with praise.


O tell of His might,
O sing of His grace,
Whose robe is the light,
Whose canopy, space;
His chariots of wrath
The deep thunder-clouds form,
And dark is His path
On the wings of the storm.


The earth, with its store
Of wonders untold,
Almighty, Thy power
hath founded of old:
Hath stablished it fast
By a changeless decree,
And round it hath cast,
Like a mantle, the sea.


Thy bountiful care
What tongue can recite?
It breathes in the air,
It shines in the light,
It streams from the hills,
It descends to the plain,
And sweetly distils
In the dew and the rain.


Frail children of dust,
And feeble as frail,
In Thee do we trust,
Nor find Thee to fail:
Thy mercies, how tender,
How firm to the end,
Our maker, defender,
Redeemer, and friend!


O Lord of all might,
How boundless Thy love!
While angels delight
To hymn Thee above,
The humbler creation,
Though feeble their lays,
With true adoration
Shall sing to Thy praise.


---Alternative verses---


O measureless might!
Ineffable love!
While angels delight
To worship Thee above,
Thy humbler creation,
Though feeble their lays,
With true adoration
Shall sing to Thy praise.


My foule praise the Lord,
speake good of his Name,
O Lord our great God
how doeft thou appeare,
So passing in glorie,
that great is thy fame,
Honour and maieftie,
in thee fhine moft cleare.


His chamber beames lie,
in the clouds full fure,
Which as his chariot,
are made him to beare.
And there with much fwitneff
his courfe doth endure:
Upon the wings riding,
of winds in the aire.


O Father and God,
How faithful Thy love!
While angels delight
To hymn Thee above,
The humbler creation,
Though feeble their lays,
With true adoration
Shall sing to Thy praise.
