GOD is a name my soul adores,

By A Collection of Hymns

      1 GOD is a name my soul adores,
      The almighty Three, the eternal One;
      Nature and grace, with all their powers,
      Confess the Infinite unknown.

      2 Thy voice produced the sea and spheres,
      Bade the waves roar, the planets shine:
      But nothing like thyself appears
      Through all these spacious works of thine.

      3 Still restless nature dies and grows,
      From change to change the creatures run:
      Thy being no succession knows,
      And all thy vast designs are one.

      4 A glance of thine runs through the globe,
      Rules the bright worlds, and moves their frame;
      Of light thou form'st thy dazzling robe,
      Thy ministers are living flame.

      5 How shall polluted mortals dare
      To sing thy glory or thy grace?
      Beneath thy feet we lie afar,
      And see but shadows of thy face.

      6 Who can behold the blazing light?
      Who can approach consuming flame?
      None but thy Wisdom knows thy might,
      None but thy Word can speak thy name.
