Hymn/Song Information

Eternal and immortal King Thy peerless




Eternal and immortal King!
Thy peerless splendours none can bear;
But darkness veils seraphic eyes,
When God with all his glorys there.


Yet faith can pierce the awful gloom,
The great Invisible can see;
And with its tremblings mingle joy,
In fixed regard, great God! to thee.


Then every tempting form of sin,
Shamed in thy presence, disappears;
And all the glowing raptured soul
The likeness it contemplates, wears.


O ever conscious to my heart!
Witness to its supreme desire:
Behold, it presseth on to thee,
For it hath caught the heavenly fire.


This one petition would it urge
To bear thee ever in its sight;
In life, in death, in worlds unknown,
Its only portion and delight!
