Immortal, invisible, God only wise

1
Immortal, invisible, God only wise,
In light inaccessible hid from our eyes,
Most blessed, most glorious, the Ancient of Days,
Almighty, victorious, Thy great name we praise.
2
Unresting, unhasting, and silent as light,
Nor wanting, nor wasting, Thou rulest in might;
Thy justice like mountains high soaring above
Thy clouds which are fountains of goodness and love.
3
To all life Thou givest, to both great and small;
In all life Thou livest, the true life of all;
We blossom and flourish as leaves on the tree,
And wither and perish, but nought changeth Thee.
4
Great Father of Glory, pure Father of Light
Thine angels adore Thee, all veiling their sight;
All laud we would render, O help us to see:
'Tis only the splendor of light hideth Thee.
5
Immortal, invisible, God only wise,
In light inaccessible hid from our eyes,
Most blessed, most glorious, the Ancient of Days,
Almighty, victorious, Thy great name we praise.

After studying the words I began to imagine the mood of the composer, the composer adored the true nature of the Almighty God and concluded that God is great and this has been helping me since 1999 this very song has not faded in my mind, body and soul.

I sing this to glorify my God nevertheless when we cross over to the other side to be with God should not be seen as perishing. It is body that perishes, our spirit returns to his maker for an award or condemnation. Our body is the earthly container that is of the dust, and shall return to dust. Our spirit is of God and will not perish. May the Spirit of God help us in this earthly sojourn to live pleasing God.
