Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

不能朽,不能見,獨一的真神 (Immortal, invisible, God only wise)

Full Text

一 不能朽,不能見,獨一的真神,
住在不可迫視的光輝之境;
最可頌,最榮耀,亙古永長存,
又全能,又全勝,讚美主大名。

二 不止息,不焦急,如光無聲息、
無缺乏,無耗損,掌權以能力;
你判斷憑公義如高山巍立,
你施恩又施愛如靉雲普及。

三 賜生命與氣息予大小生靈,
活在萬有中,惟你是真生命;
我們有如花草,今朝雖茂盛;
明朝即枯殘,惟你永不變更。

四 榮耀之父四射純潔的光輝,
寶座前,天使無不掩面侍立;
我們向你讚美,使我們領會
祗是神聖光華今將你隱蔽。
