Glories of God

6 (C.M.) John Rippon

Amid the splendors of thy state,

My God, Thy love appears

With the soft radiance of the moon

Among a thousand stars.

Nature, through all her ample round,

Thy boundless power proclaims,

And in melodious accents speaks

The goodness of Thy name.

Thy justice, holiness, and truth,

Our solemn awe excite;

But the sweet charms of sovereign grace

O'erwhelm us with delight.

Sinai, in clouds, and smoke, and fire,

Thunders Thy dreadful name;

But Sion sings, in melting notes,

The honors of the Lamb.

In all Thy doctrines and commands,

Thy counsels and designs,

In ev'ry work thy hands have fram'd,

Thy love supremely shines.

Angels and men the news proclaim,

Through earth and heav'n above,

The joyful, the transporting news,

That God the Lord is love!
