1Glorious God, accept a heart
That pants to sing Thy praise:
Thou, without beginning art,
And without end of days;
Thou, a Spirit invisible,
Dost to none Thy fullness show;
None Thy Majesty can tell,
Or all Thy Godhead know.
2All Thine attributes we own,
Thy wisdom, power, and might,
Happy in Thyself alone,
In goodness infinite,
Thou Thy goodness hast displayed,
On Thine every work imprest,
Lov’st whate’er Thy hands have made;
But man Thou lovest best.
3Willing Thou that all should know
Thy saving truth, and live,
Dost to each, or bliss or woe,
With strictest justice give:
Thou with perfect righteousness
Renderest every man his due;
Faithful in Thy promises,
And in Thy threatenings too.
4Thou art merciful to all
Who truly turn to Thee!
Hear me, then, for pardon call,
And show Thy grace to me;
Me, through mercy reconciled,
Me, for Jesus’ sake forgiven,
Me receive, Thy favored child,
To sing Thy praise in heaven.
Deuteronomy4:31(For the LORD thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them.
