My God, How Wonderful You Are

Melody - "Azmon," Carl Gotthelf Gläser (1784-1829); arr. Lowell Mason, 1839
Alternate melody - "Ortonville"

Frederick William Faber (1814-1863)

My God, how wonderful You are,
Your majesty, how bright;
How beautiful Your mercy seat,
In depths of burning light!

2. How wonderful, how beautiful,
The sight of You must be;
Your endless wisdom, boundless power,
And glorious purity!

3. O how I fear you, living God,
With deep and tender fear;
And worship you with trembling hope,
And penitential tears!

4. Yet, I may love you, too, O Lord,
Almighty as You are;
For You have stooped to ask of me
The love of my poor heart!
