    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.
