Hymn/Song Information

The heaven of heavens cannot contain




The heaven of heavens cannot contain
the universal Lord;
yet he in humble hearts will deign
to dwell and be adored.


Where'er ascends the sacrifice
of fervent praise and prayer,
or in the earth or in the skies,
the heaven of God is there.


His presence there is spread abroad
through realms, through worlds unknown;
who seeks the mercies of his God
is ever near his throne.


---Alternative verses---


Where'er ascends the sacrifice
of fervent praise and prayer,
or in the earth or in the skies,
the God of heaven is there.


His presence is diffused abroad
through realms, through worlds unknown;
who seeks the mercies of our God
is ever near his throne.
