Full Text

1 Thou, Lord, art God alone,
Veiling Thy burning throne
From mortal sight;
Yet Thou our Father art,
From whose all-pitying heart
Nor life nor death can part,
Nor depth, nor height.

2 We praise Thee, Holy One—
The Father’s only Son,
His image bright;
Our Prophet, Priest, and King,
Who dost redemption bring,
Thy matchless grace we sing,
Thy saving might.

3 We praise Thee, heav’nly Guest,
Thou great and last bequest
Of Love to man;
O blessed Paraclete,
Guide Thou our pilgrim feet,
Till glory shall complete
What grace began.

4 We praise Thee, Father, Son,
And Spirit, Three in One,
God of all grace;
Angles and Cherubim,
With flaming Seraphim,
Thy name, Thrice Holy, hymn
With veiled face.
