1 Eternal Power, Almighty God,
Who can approach thy throne?
Accessless light is thine abode,
To angel eyes unknown.
2 Before the radiance of thine eye,
The heavens no longer shine;
And all the glories of the sky
Are but the shade of thine.
3 Great God, and wilt thou condescend
To cast a look below?
To this dark world thy notice bend--
These seats of sin and woe?
4 How strange, how wondrous is thy love!
With trembling we adore:
Not all th' exalted minds above
Its wonders can explore.
5 While golden harps and angel tongues
Resound immortal lays,
Great God, permit our humble songs
To rise and speak thy praise.
