1 My God, how wonderful you are,
your majesty how bright;
how beautiful your mercy seat
in depths of burning light!

2 Creator from eternal years
and everlasting Lord,
by holy angels day and night
unceasingly adored!

3 How wonderful, how beautiful
the sight of you must be
your endless wisdom, boundless power,
and awesome purity!

4 O how I fear you, living God,
with deepest, tenderest fears,
and worship you with trembling hope
and penitential tears!

5 But I may love you too, O Lord,
though you are all-divine,
for you have stooped to ask of me
this feeble love of mine.

6 Father of Jesus, love's reward,
great king upon your throne,
what joy to see you as you are
and know as I am known!
