4. 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,
In depths of burning light!

2 How dread are Thine eternal years,
O Everlasting Lord:
By prostrate spirits day and night
Incessantly adored,
Incessantly adored!

3 How wonderful, how beautiful,
The sight of Thee must be,
Thine endless wisdom, boundless power,
And awful purity,
And awful purity!

4 O how I fear Thee, living God,
With deepest, tenderest fears,
And worship Thee with trembling hope,
And penitential tears,
And penitential tears!

5 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,
The love of my poor heart.

Amen.
