Hymn/Song Information

Eternal power almighty God Who can approach thy




Eternal power, almighty God!
Who can approach thy throne?
Accessless light is thine abode,
To angel-eyes unknown.


Before the radiance of thine eye,
The heavens no longer shine;
And all the glories of the sky
Are but the shade of thine.


Great God, and wilt thou condescend
To cast a look below?
To this vile world thy notice bend —
The seats of sin and we?


But O! To show thy smiling face,
To ring thy glories near!
Amazing and transporting grace,
To dwell with mortals here!


How strange! How awful is thy love!
With trembling we adore:
Not all th’ exalted minds above
Its wonders can explore.


While golden harps and angel tongues
Resound immortal lays,
Great God, permit our humble songs
To rise and mean thy praise.


---Alternative verses---


Great God, and wilt thou condescend
To cast a look below?
To this vile world thy notice bend —
These seats of sin and woe?


While golden harps and angel tongues
Resound immortal lays,
Great God, permit our humble songs
To rise and speak thy praise.
