Great God of Wonders!

Great God of wonders! All Thy ways
Are matchless, godlike, and divine;
But the fair glories of Thy grace
More God-like and unrivalled shine:
Who is a pardoning God like Thee?
Or who has grace so rich and free?
Angels and men, resign your claim,
To pity, mercy, love, and grace;
These glories crown Jehovah’s name
With an incomparable blaze:
Who is a pardoning God like thee?
Or who has grace so rich and free?
O may this strange, this matchless grace,
This godlike miracle of love,
Fill the wide earth with grateful praise,
And all the angelic choirs above:
Who is a pardoning God like thee?
Or who has grace so rich and free?

Poem by Samuel Davies (1723-1761)
