Praise to the holiest in the height

And in the depth be praise;

In all his words most wonderful,

Most sure in all his ways!


O loving wisdom of our God!

When all was sin and shame,

A second Adam to the fight

And to the rescue came.


O wisest love! that flesh and blood,

Which did in Adam fail,

Should strive afresh against the foe,

Should strive and should prevail;


And that the highest gift of grace

Should flesh and blood refine:

God's presence and his very self,

And essence all divine.


O generous love that he who came

As man to smite the foe,

The double agony for us

As man should undergo:


And in the garden secretly,

And on the cross on high,

Should teach his brethren, and inspire

To suffer and to die.
