Hymn/Song Information

THE MAJESTY OF GOD




We sing the majesty of God,
Whose wisdom spread the heavens abroad;
To him creation owes its birth,
His mighty arm sustains the earth.


Should angels or archangels dare,
With him their glories to compare,
He soon in wrath would make them know,
Himself how high, themselves how low.


His essence fills unbounded space,
His ways our highest thought surpass;
In worlds unnumbered and unknown,
He reigns unrivaled and alone.


The evening shade, the morning light,
The sun by day and stars by night,
Unite their voices to proclaim,
The awful grandeur of his name.


He sees our griefs with pitying eyes,
His liberal hand our need supplies;
From him full streams of mercy flow,
To cheer this gloomy vale below.


Thou God of grace and matchless power,
With reverence we thy name adore;
To thee our grateful songs we raise,
Though feeble are our notes of praise.
