PRAISE TO THE HOLIEST IN THE HEIGHT

1.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.

2.O loving wisdom of our God !
When all was sin and shame,
A second Adam to the fight
And to the rescue came.

3.O wisest love! that flesh and blood
Which did in Adam fall,
Should strive afresh against the foe,
Should strive and should prevail.

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

5.O generotis love ! that He, who smote
In man for man the foe,
The double agony to man
For man should undergo.

6.And In the garden secretly,
And on the Cross on high,
Should teach His brethren, and Inspire
To suffer and to die.

7.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.
