Verse 1
PRAISE to the Holiest in the height,
And in the depth be praise:
In all His words most wonderful,
Most sure in all His ways.

Verse 2
O loving wisdom of our GOD!
When all was sin and shame,
A second Adam to the fight
And to the rescue came.

Verse 3
O wisest love! that flesh and blood,
Which did in Adam fail,
Should strive afresh against the foe,
Should strive and should prevail.

Verse 4
And that a higher gift than grace
Should flesh and blood refine,
GOD's Presence and His very Self,
And Essence all-Divine.

Verse 5
O generous love! that He, Who smote,
In Man for man the foe,
The double agony in Man
For man should undergo;

Verse 6
And in the garden secretly,
And on the Cross on high,
Should teach His brethren, and inspire
To suffer and to die.

Verse 7
Praise to the Holiest in the height,
And in the depth be praise:
In all His words most wonderful,
Most sure in all His ways.
