1 God is the name my soul adores,
Th' Almighty Threem th' Eternal One;
Nature and grace, with all their powers
Confess the Infinite Unknown.
2 Thy voice produced the seas and spheres,
Bade the waves roar, and planets shine;
But nothing like Thyself appears
Through all these spacious works of Thine.
3 Still restless nature dies and grows;
From change to change the creatures run;
Thy being so succession knows,
And all Thy vast designs are one.
4 Who can behold the blazing light?
Who can approach consuming flame?
None but Thy wisdom knows Thy might.
None but Thy word can speak Thy name.
