Great God, how infinite art thou!

Great God, how infinite art thou!
How poor and weak are we! 
Let the whole race of creatures bow, 
and pay their praise to thee. 

Thy throne eternal ages stood, 
ere seas or stars were made. 
Thou art the ever-living God, 
were all the nations dead. 

Eternity, with all its years, 
stands present in thy view. 
To thee there's nothing old appears; 
great God, there's nothing new. 

Our lives through various scenes are drawn, 
and vexed with trifling cares,
while thine eternal thought moves on 
thine undisturbed affairs.

(repeat vs. 1)
