Mighty God, While Angels Bless Thee
~Robert Robinson, 1774
Mighty God, while angels bless Thee
May a mortal sing Thy name?
Lord of men as well as angels,
Thou art every creature’s theme.
Lord of every land and nation,
Ancient of eternal days,
Sounded thru the wide creation
Be Thy just and endless praise.
Brightness of the Father’s glory,
Shall Thy praise unuttered lie?
Break, my tongue, such guilty silence!
Sing the Lord who came to die.
From the highest throne of glory
To the cross of deepest woe,
All to ransom guilty captives;
Flow my praise, forever flow! Amen.
