1 Great and wonderful, Lord God,
Are your works, creation shows it;
Just and true are all your ways,
Every saint profoundly knows it.
   With all saints, throughout our days,
   We shall sing God's worthy praise.


2 Great the love of God in Christ,
Taking flesh and touched by sorrow;
Pouring out his inmost soul
To enrich the saints' tomorrow.
   With all saints, ...

3 Great the Holy Spirit's grace,
Tempering the human story;
Sinners are transformed to saints,
Changed from glory into glory.
   With all saints, ...
