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 reading and wrestling with the challenging verses in Exodus 12, I was reminded if this hymn which I sang as my statement of faith. So grateful that I could find the lyrics.

I was reading Psalms 103:15 :which says " our days on earth are like the grass that withereth ..." when this hymn popped up in my head. So l started singing it. And O what delight it brings to my soul.

Havent heard it in years.

Thank You Father for reminding me that my life us like flowers that bloom. then fade away and perish.... but naught changeth Thhe.

I sang this song growing up but never truly appreciated the words as I do now. I feel lifted into God's presence each time I sing the song.

Great hymn, thanks be to God for the free gift of eternal life through faith ALONE in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Romans 4:5 KJV

But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the unGodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.

John 10:28 KJV

And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

What an awesome, glorious hymnal, for a beautiful savior. Thank you very much (hymnal. net). Jesus, the way (the only way), the truth and the life.

I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of Heaven and Earth, and in Jesus Christ His only Son our Lord who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, was crucified, died, and was buried; He descended into Hell, on the 3rd day He rose again from the dead. He ascended into Heaven where He sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty - from thence shall He come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of the saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and the life everlasting.

There is no God but the One True God, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and there isn't another one. Cheat yourself of this truth and you decide your own unworthiness of eternal life. Hell is a real bad place, if you die in your sins and trespasses, having not accepted Christ as your personal Saviour, that is where you will go, then on to the Lake of Fire prepared for the devil and his angels where you will burn forever. With Jesus you have forgiveness and peace; without Him you have unimaginable torment. Repent of your wickedness and turn to the LORD. He is quick to forgive and quick to heal. Never mention the devil on a Christian website again unless you are prepared to join him in the Lake of Fire, where there is no reprieve. That was inappropriate.

I do not believe in Jesus, but am faithful to a different deity, but I am grateful for this song which is non-specific and applies to any religion.
