2364. Hail Father, Whose Creating Call

1. Hail, Father, whose creating call
Unnumbered worlds attend;
Jehovah, comprehending all,
Whom none can comprehend!

2. In light unsearchable enthroned,
Whom angels dimly see,
The fountain of the Godhead owned,
And foremost of the Three.

3. From Thee, through an eternal now,
The Son, Thine offspring, flowed;
An everlasting father Thou,
An everlasting God.

4. Nor quite displayed to worlds above,
Nor quite on earth concealed;
By wondrous, unexhausted love,
To mortal man revealed.

5. Supreme and all-sufficient God,
When nature shall expire,
And worlds created by Thy nod
Shall perish by Thy fire.

6. Thy name, Jehovah, be adored
By creatures without end,
Whom none but Thy essential Word
And Spirit comprehend.
