1 Th' unutterable Word Thou art,
O Christ, to Sons of Men;
Jehovah spake Thee from his Heart,
And Worlds existed then.
2 He spake Thee then a Law to all
The glorious Hierarchy,
And firm decreed their dreadful Fall,
Who would not worship thee.
3 By thee he rules the Worlds above,
And all the Worlds below;
By thee he doth his Grace and Love,
His Wrath and Justice, shew.
4 Thou, the exalted Throne of Grace,
The Father's peaceful Seat,
Where we with Joy behold his Face,
And worship at his Feet.
5 In thee now sav'd, no more we fear
The Curse of Adam's Fall;
In thee with Boldness we draw near
To God, the Judge of All.
