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.
(REPEAT VERSE 1)
