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.

Thank GOD for the hymns on here! Grew up with them. Our church still sings them interspersed with other types of today's songs, spiritual songs. We only had hymns growing up ( which we loved and still do) and so nice to have the words which I can now enlarge , because macular degeneration is about the middle stage..... so to have these is such a blessing.

One of the greatest hymns about the magnificence of God. It brings great memories alive of retreats and convocations during my adolescent periods. May His name be praised forever.

Attending a funeral at Ifon, Ondo State, Nigeria and this song was sung as a special number. Immediately, my spirit was lifted because this is one of my best hymns. "Immortal, invincible, God only wise, in light inaccessible hid from our eyes". God be praised.
