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

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

O wisest love that flesh and blood
Which did in Adam fail
Should strive afresh against the foe
Should strive and should prevail

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

O generous love that He who smote
In man for man the foe
The double agony in man
For man should undergo

And in the garden secretly
And on the cross on high
Should teach His brethren and inspire
To suffer and to die

Praise to the Holiest in the height
And to the depths be praise
In all His words most wonderful
Most sure in all His ways
