Oh, the riches of God’s wisdom,
– deep and infinitely wise;
perfect knowledge, rich and splendid:
who can fully realise
how profound, complete his judgements,
how unsearchable, how wise? –
ways that we can never fathom:
God of glorious surprise!
Who has known his mind, or counselled
mighty Lord, omniscient King?
Who provided for Jehovah?
He supplies the gifts we bring.
Sovereign God is no man’s debtor –
Source, Sustainer of the skies;
giving breath, and life, and mercy:
glory be to God so wise!
