#34: Immortal, Invisible

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Immortal, invisible, God only wise,

In light inaccessible hid from our eyes,

Most blessed, most glorious, the Ancient of Days,

Almighty, victorious – Thy great name we praise.

2

Unresting, unhasting, and silent as light,

Nor wanting, nor wasting, Thou rulest in might;

Thy justice, like mountains, high soaring above

Thy clouds, which are foundations of goodness and love.

3

To all, life Thou givest – to both great and small,

In all life Thou livest – the true life of all;

We blossom and flourish as leaves on the tree,

And wither and perish – but naught changeth Thee.

4

Great Father of glory, pure Father of light,

Thine angels adore Thee, all veiling their sight;

All praise we would render – O help us to see

‘Tis only the splendor of light hideth Thee!
