Immortal, Invisible

Immortal, invisible, God only wise,
In light inaccessible hid from our eyes
Most blessed, most glorious, the Ancient of Days,
Almighty, victorious, Thy great name we praise.
Verse 2 (Skip to Madam’s verse)
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.
Verse 3
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 nought changeth Thee.
Verse 4
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 splendour of light hideth Thee.
Madam’s Verse
To all life Thou givest to both great and small;
In all life Thou livest, the true life of all;
Thy wisdom so boundless, Thy mercy so free
Eternal Thy goodness for naught changeth Thee
