Hymn/Song Information

God You have given us power to sound




God, you have given us power to sound
Depths hitherto unknown;
To probe earth’s hidden mysteries,
And make their might our own.


Great are your gifts; yet greater far
This gift, O God, bestow,
That as to knowledge we attain
We may in wisdom grow.


Let wisdom’s godly fear dispel
All fears that hate impart;
Give understanding to the mind,
And with new mind new heart.


So for your glory and our good
May we your gifts employ,
Lest, maddened by the lust of power,
We should ourselves destroy.
