My God how wonderful thou art
Thy majesty hour bright
Hour beautiful thy mercy seat
In depths of burning light
Yet I may love thee to O Lord
Almighty as thou art
For thou has stooped to ask of me
The love of my poor heart
No earthly father lowers like thee
No mother half so mild
Bear and forbears as thou hast done
With me thy wilful[sic] child

God of peace before thee
Peacful here we kneel
Humbly to implore thee
For a nations weal[?]
God of peace low bending
