Immortal, Invincible, God Only Wise! #MOP16

Today I would like to praise God with this very popular hymn.... I love hymns a whole LOT and I wish I could praise Him with as many as possible today (lol) but I'll go ahead and exalt His name with this particular one because it exalts the name of our great God so beautifully!

I love the hymn Great is thy Faithfulness (because it talks about the faithfulness of God. My God is a FAITHFUL God. You can rely on Him, He is dependable, very dependable). I also really like 'My Help Cometh from the Lord' - I can lift up my hand in total surrender to the One who can lift my burdens and carry me through life. I love 'To God be the Glory', 'How Great Thou Art', 'Now thank we all our God' and of course 'In Christ Alone'! Love them and so much more..

However, here's my pick today... I praise You Immortal, Invincible, God only Wise -

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;
But of all Thy rich graces this grace, Lord, impart
Take the veil from our faces, the vile from our heart.

All laud we would render; O help us to see
’Tis only the splendor of light hideth Thee,
And so let Thy glory, Almighty, impart,
Through Christ in His story, Thy Christ to the heart.
