33. My God, How Wonderful Thou Art

1 My God, how wonderful Thou art,
Thy majesty how bright,
How beautiful Thy mercy seat,
In depths of burning light!

2 How dread are Thine eternal years,
O everlasting Lord:
By prostrate spirits day and night
Incessantly adored!

3 How wonderful, how beautiful,
The sight of Thee must be,
Thine endless wisdom, boundless pow'r
And awful purity!

4 O how I fear Thee, living God,
With deepest, tend'rest fears,
And worship Thee with trembling hope,
And penitential tears!

5 Yet I may love Thee too, O Lord,
Almighty as Thou art,
For thou has stooped to ask of me
The love of my poor heart!
