8.7.8.7.


1
BLESS√ąD God, above creation,
Infinite, inscrutable,
Thou in light, beyond relation,
Unapproachable dost dwell.
2
When Thou dost behold in heaven
And on earth the things that are,
It is said, Thyself Thou humblest -
O Thy grace beyond compare!
3
Who to The hath given counsel?
Who Thy mind hath ever known?
Not to any Thou accountest
Of the things that are Thine own.
4
But the glory of Thy greatness
Finds in love its counterpart:
Jesus' death the' eternal witness
To the feelings of Thy heart.
5
Wonder of the incarnation!
Thou art now in Christ revealed
Universal adoration
Be its everlasting yield!
