Hymn 20 - "To God - alone"


TO God—alone

Dwelling in uncreated light,

Who hast unknown Immortal Being beyond sight—

Honour and everlasting might!


 Yet though our eyes

May not behold Thy Deity—

So broadly lies The gulf between all else and Thee—

We Thy revealed glories see!


By faith we see

Jesus with highest honour crowned;

And majesty

Divine and human, without bound,

Filling with joy all heav'n around!


 In Him revealed

Thy counsel, ere the world began;

Nought is concealed,

O God, of all Thy wondrous plan,

Divine perfection in a Man!


Blest Potentate,

Thou, Lord of lords and sovereign King,

Shalt reign in state;

All nations shall Christ's glory sing,

To Him their gifts and treasure bring!
