35. My God, How Wonderful Thou Art

1 My God, how wonderful thou art,
thy majesty how bright!
How beautiful thy mercy seat,
in depths of burning light!

2 Wondrous are thine eternal years,
O everlasting Lord,
by holy angels day and night
unceasingly adored!

3 O how I fear thee, living God,
with deepest, tend'rest fears,
and worship thee with trembling hope,
and penitential tears.

4 Yet I may love thee too, O Lord,
almighty as thou art;
for thou hast stooped to ask of me
the love of my poor heart.

5 No earthly father loves like thee,
no mother half so mild
bears and forbears, as thou hast done
with me, thy sinful child.

6 How wonderful, how beautiful,
the sight of thee will be,
thine endless wisdom, boundless pow'r,
and awesome purity!
