How Wondrous and Great

Majestically

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. 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.
