7s & 6s. The same subject. 1 GLORIOUS God, accept a heart That pants to sing thy praise: Thou without beginning art, And without end of days; Thou, a Spirit invisible, Dost to none thy fulness show; None thy majesty can tell, Or all thy Godhead know.
2 All thine attributes we own, Thy wisdom, power, and might; Happy in thyself alone, In goodness infinite, Thou thy goodness hast displayed, On thine every work imprest; Lov'st whate'er thy hands have made, But man thou lov'st the best.
3 Willing thou that all should know Thy saving truth, and live, Dost to each or bliss or woe With strictest justice give; Thou with perfect righteousness Renderest every man his due, Faithful in thy promises, And in thy threatenings too.
4 Thou art merciful to all Who truly turn to thee, Hear me then for pardon call, And show thy grace to me; Me, through mercy reconciled, Me, for Jesu's sake forgiven, Me receive, thy favoured child, To sing thy praise in heaven.
