1 God of boundless might, Lord of life and light,
We would bow before Thy throne,
We would bow before Thy throne;
Praise and worship bring to Thy name, O King,
All Thy wondrous power own,
All Thy wondrous power own.
Honor, glory, glory, to Thy name,
Ever living God of boundless might,
The ransomed hosts above Thy wondrous pow'r proclaim,
And praise Thee day and night, day and night;
Earth and sea and sky Thy name adore,
Give to Thee their praise forevermore,
Throned above in heaven's light,
God of might, boundless might!
Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen.
2 Blessed One-in-Three, thro' eternity
Nations round Thy feet shall throng,
Nations round Thy feet shall throng;
"Hail Jehovah King!" loud their voices ring,
Choirs of angels join the song,
Choirs of angels join the song. [Chorus]
3 God of boundless might, throned in heaven's height,
Great Creator, praise is Thine,
Great Creator, praise is Thine;
Gracious is Thy sway, Thou shalt reign for aye,
Son of Righteousness divine,
Son of Righteousness divine. [Chorus]
Lizzie De Armond was a prolific writer of children's hymns, recitations and exercises. When she was twelve years old her first poem was published in the Germantown, Pa. Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
