How wondrous great, how glorious bright

1 How wondrous great, how glorious bright must our Creator be, who dwells amidst the dazzling light of vast eternity.
2 Our soaring spirits upwards rise to reach the burning throne and long to see the blessed Three in the Almighty One.
3 Our reason stretches all its wings, and climbs above the skies; but still how far beneath thy feet our groundling knowledge lies!
4 While all the heavenly powers conspire eternal praise to sing, let faith in humble notes adore the great mysterious King.
