Hymn/Song Information

God is the name my soul adores




God is the Name my soul adores,
The almighty Three, the eternal One;
Nature and grace, with all their powers,
Confess the Infinite unknown.


From thy great self thy being springs:
Thou art thy own original
Made up of uncreated things,
And self-sufficience bears them all.


Thy voice produced the sea and spheres,
Bade the waves roar, the planets shine;
But nothing like Thyself appears
Through all these spacious works of Thine.


Still restless nature dies and grows;
From change to change the creatures run:
Thy being no succession knows,
And all Thy vast designs are one.


Thrones and dominions round thee fell,
And worship in submissive forms;
Thy presence shakes this lower ball,
This little dwelling-place of worms.


A glance of Thine runs through the globe,
Rules the bright worlds, and moves their frame;
Of light Thou formíst Thy dazzling robe;
Thy ministers are living flame.


How shall polluted mortals dare
To sing Thy glory or Thy grace?
Beneath Thy feet we lie afar,
And see but shadows of Thy face.


Who can behold the blazing light?
Who can approach the consuming flame?
None but Thy wisdom knows Thy might
None but Thy Word can speak Thy Name.


*** alt vers


How shall affrighted mortals dare
To sing thy glory or thy grace?
Beneath thy feet we lie so far,
And see but shadows of thy face!
