How Wondrous and Great

 


Lyrics

  1. 1. How wondrous and great

    Thy works, God of praise!

    How just, King of Saints,

    And true are thy ways!

    Oh, who shall not fear thee

    And honor thy name?

    Thou only art holy,

    Thou only supreme.

  2. 2. To nations long dark

    Thy light shall be shown.

    Their worship and vows

    Shall come to thy throne.

    Thy truth and thy judgments

    Shall spread all abroad,

    Till earth’s ev’ry people

    Confess thee their God.
