My God, how wonderful Thou art,

How wonderful, how beautiful,

Thine endless wisdom, boundless pow’r,
And awesome purity!

Prostrate before Thy throne to lie,
And ever gaze on Thee!

Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace according to thy word.
For mine eyes have seen thy salvation,
Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people;
To be a light to lighten the Gentiles and to be the glory of thy people Israel.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.
As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be. World without end, amen.
