121. 10s. M. Mme. Guion. God Incomprehensible.
1 Almighty Former of creation's plan,
Faintly reflected in thine image, man;
Holy and just, -- the greatness of whose name
Rules and supports this universal frame: --
2 Whose spirit fills the infinitude of space, --
Who art thyself thine own vast dwelling place; --
Soul of our soul, whom yet no sense of ours
Discerns, eluding our most active powers: --
3 Encircling shades attend thine awful throne,
That veil thy face, and keep thee still unknown;
Unknown, though dwelling in our inmost part,
Lord of the thoughts, and Sovereign of the heart!
