Praise to the holiest


    • 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 a higher gift than grace 
    • Should flesh and blood refine, 
    • God's presence and His very self, 
    • And essence all-divine. 

    • O generous love! that He, who smote 
    • In Man for man the foe, 
    • The double agony in Man 
    • For 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. 

    • Praise to the Holiest in the height, 
    • And to the depth be praise; 
    • In all His words most wonderful, 
    • Most sure in all His ways
