1
O GOD, the great "I AM," we worship Thee
For Thine amazing gift has set men free!
Redemption's work has lifted every load,
Secured a princely people for their God.
2
We trace Thy counsels deep ere worlds began,
And see Thine own great thoughts in making man.
Thy soverein will has wrought to set all free,
To bring in life and joy and liberty.
3
No tear-filled eyes then left to chill the joy
Of new creation's bliss without alloy!
All grief by Thy blest service there removed;
O God of love, Thy love so fully proved!
4
How choice the notes that rise responsively,
In Thine abode throughout eternity!
The vast extent of the created sphere
Rejoices, knowing Thou, O God, art near.
