Redeemed Hymn 80 – Immortal, Invisible, God Only Wise

“Now unto King eternal, immortal invisible the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever” -1 Tim. 1:17

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 splendour of light hideth Thee.
