Gloriously Wasteful

Gloriously wasteful, O my Lord art Thou! ~ George MacDonald


Immortal, invisible,
God only wise,
In light inaccessible
hid from our eyes,
Most bless├Ęd, most glorious,
the Ancient of Days,
Almighty, victorious,
Thy great Name we praise.






Unresting, unhasting,
and silent as light,
Nor wanting, nor wasting,
Thou rulest in might;
Thy justice, like mountains,
high soaring above
Thy clouds, which are fountains
of goodness and love.




To all, life Thou givest,
to both great and small;
In all life Thou livest,
the true life of all;
We blossom and flourish
as leaves on the tree,
And wither and perish--
but naught changeth Thee
.


Great Father of glory,
pure Father of light,
Thine angels adore Thee,
all veiling their sight;
All laud we would render;
O help us to see
'Tis only the splendor
of light hideth Thee.
