Hymn/Song Information

O God Thy being who can sound




O God, thy being who can sound?
Thee to perfection who can know?
O height immense! No words are found
Thy countless attributes to show.


Unfathomable depths thou art!
O plunge me in thy mercy’s sea;
Void of true wisdom in my heart:
With love embrace and cover me.


Eternity thy fountain was,
Which, like thee, no beginning knew;
Thou wast ere time began his race,
Ere glowed with stars the ethereal blue.


Unchangeable, all-perfect Lord,
Essential life’s unbounded sea,
What lives and moves lives by thy word;
It lives, and moves, and is from thee.


Parent of good, thy bounteous hand
Incessant blessings down distils,
And all in air, or sea, or land
With plenteous food and gladness fills.


Greatness unspeakable is thine,
Thou sun, whose undiminished ray,
When short-lived worlds are lost, shall shine
When earth and heav’n are fled away.
