Hymn/Song Information

High in the heavens eternal God Thy goodness in




High in the heavens, eternal God,
Thy goodness in full glory shines;
Thy truth shall break through every cloud
That veils and darkens Thy designs.


Forever firm Thy justice stands,
As mountains their foundations keep;
Wise are the wonders of Thy hands;
Thy judgements are a mighty deep.


Thy providence is kind and large
Both man and beast Thy bounty share;
The whole creation is Thy charge,
But saints are Thy peculiar care.


My God, how excellent Thy grace,
Whence all our hope and comfort spring!
The sons of Adam in distress
Fly to the shadow of Thy wing.


From the provisions of Thy house
We shall be fed with sweet repast;
There mercy like a river flows,
And brings salvation to our taste.


Life, like a fountain, rich and free,
Springs from the presence of the Lord;
And in Thy light our souls shall see
The glories promised in Thy Word.


---Alternative verses---


High in the heavens, eternal God,
Thy goodness in full glory shines;
Thy truth shall break through every cloud
That veils thy just and wise designs.


All who have made thy grace their trust,
Are with rich blessings daily fed;
And endless comforts to the just,
Flow like a river in its bed.


Life like a fountain springs from thee.
From thee the streams of mercy flow;
And when thy goodness shines, we see
That all things bright around us grow.


Life, like a fountain, rich and free,
Springs from the presence of my Lord;
And in Thy light our souls shall see
The glories promised in Thy word.


O God, how excellent Thy grace,
Whence all our hope and comfort spring!
The sons of Adam in distress
Fly to the shadow of Thy wing.


In the provisions of Thy house
We still shall find a sweet repast;
There mercy like a river flows,
And brings salvation to our taste.
