1. O God, how great your power!
You speak, and worlds are founded:
The sands are weighed, the oceans bound,
The heavens spread, their stars all named,
The sun, the moon, the planets framed—
O God, how mighty your power!
 

2. O God, how wide your mercy!
Your grace you have extended,
Redeeming sinners who offend.
You loved your enemies and sent
Your son to save all who repent.
O God, how boundless your mercy!
 

3. O God, how fair your justice!
Your hand upholds the lowly,
And lifts the meek who stumbling go;
But silences the tongue that boasts,
And overthrows earth’s haughty hosts.
O God, how faultless your justice!
 

4. O God, how clear your foresight!
You foretell judgement looming
(Eternal joy or endless gloom),
For from the start you know the end,
And warn us what our lives portend.
O God, how pure your foresight!
 

5. O God, how rich your bounty!
Your promise is recorded:
That you will be our great reward.
We’ll need no sun within your light,
But shine in raimant clean and white.
O God, how lavish your bounty!
