Amid the splendours of Thy state My God Thy love




Amid the splendours of Thy state,
My God, Thy love appears
With the soft radiance of the moon
Among a thousand stars.


Nature through all her ample round
Thy boundless power proclaims,
And in melodious accent, speaks
The goodness of Thy names.


Thy justice, holiness, and truth,
Our solemn awe excite;
But the sweet charms of sovereign grace
O’erwhelm us with delight.


Sinai, in clouds, and smoke, and fire,
Thunders Thy dreadful Name;
But Sion sings, in melting notes,
The honours of the Lamb.


In all Thy doctrine and commands,
Thy counsels and designs,
In every work Thy hands have framed,
Thy love supremely shines.


Angels and men the news proclaim,
Through earth and Heaven above,
The joyful and transporting news,
That God the Lord is love!


---Alternative verses---


Amid the splendours of Thy state,
O God, Thy love appears
Soft as the radiance of the moon
Among a thousand stars.


Angels and men the news proclaim,
Through earth and Heaven above,
And all with holy transport sing
That God the Lord is love!


Sinai, in clouds, and smoke, and fire,
Thunders thine awful name!
But Zion sings, in melting notes,
The honours of the Lamb.
