Immortal, invisible, God only wise
Immortal, invisible, God only wise,
in light inaccessible hid from our eyes;
most holy, most glorious, the Ancient of days,
almighty, victorious, your great name we praise.
2. Unresting, unhasting, and silent as light,
nor wanting nor wasting, you rule us in might;
your justice like mountains high soaring above
your clouds, which are fountains of goodness and love.
3. To all, life you give, Lord, to both great and small,
in all life you live, Lord, the true life of all:
we blossom and flourish, uncertain and frail;
we wither and perish, but you never fail.
4. Great Father of glory, pure Father of light;
your angels adore you, all veiling their sight;
but of all your rich graces, Lord, this grace impart,
take the veil from our faces, the veil from our heart.
5. Our praise we would render, O Father, to you
whom only the splendour of light hides from view;
and so let your glory, Almighty, impart,
through Christ in the story, your Christ to the heart.
