A Hymn by Isaac Watts - The Infinity of God

Isaac Watts
    The Infinity of God. Ps. 147. 5; Heb. 4. 13


    1    Great God! how infinite art thou!
            What worthless worms are we!
        Let the whole race of creatures bow,
            And pay their praise to thee!

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

    3    [Nature and time quite naked lie
            To thy immense survey,
        From the formation of the sky,
            To the great burning day.]

    4    Eternity, with all its years,
            Stands present in thy view;
        To thee there’s nothing old appears –
            Great God! there’s nothing new!

    5    Our lives through various scenes are drawn,
            And vexed with trifling cares,
        While thy eternal thought moves on
            Thy undisturbed affairs.

    6    Great God! how infinite art thou!
            What worthless worms are we!
        Let the whole race of creatures bow,
            And pay their praise to thee!
