218. Mighty God, While Angels Bless You

1 Mighty God, while angels bless you,
may a mortal sing your name?
Lord of men as well as angels,
you are ev'ry creature’s theme.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Amen.

2 Lord of ev'ry land and nation,
ancient of eternal days,
sounded through the wide creation
be your just and lawful praise.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Amen.

3 For the grandeur of your nature,
grand beyond a seraph’s thought,
for created works of power,
works with skill and kindness wrought.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Amen.

4 But your rich, your free redemption,
dark through brightness all along,
thought is poor, and poor expression,
who dare sing that wondrous song?
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Amen.

5 Brightness of the Father’s glory,
shall your praise unuttered lie?
Fly, my tongue, such guilty silence,
sing the Lord who came to die.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Amen.

6 From the highest throne in glory,
to the cross of deepest woe,
all to ransom guilty captives,
flow my praise, forever flow.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Amen.
