Hymn/Song Information

O thou who art above all height Our God




O thou, who art above all height!
Our God, our Father, and our Friend!
Beneath thy throne of love and light
Let thine adoring children bend.


We kneel in praise, that here is set
A vine that by thy culture grew;
We kneel in prayer that thou wouldst wet
Its opening leaves with heavenly dew.


Since thy young servant now hath given
Himself, his powers, his hopes, his youth,
To the great cause of truth and heaven,
Be thou his guide, O God of truth!


Here may his doctrines drop like rain,
His speech like Hermonís dew distil,
Till green fields smile, and golden grain
Ripe for the harvest, waits thy will.


And when he sinks in death óby care,
or pain, or toil, or years oppressed ó
O God! remember then our prayer,
And take his spirit to thy rest.
