Veiled in Light



One of the great hymns of the church!


Sang this in church this morning, and the lyrics really spoke to me. Written by Walter Chalmers Smith (1824-1908) more than 100 years ago but still powerful. Imagine belting this out with a million other saints in Heaven one day!



Immortal, invisible, God only wise (Welsh hymn melody)


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.

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.

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.

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 splendor of light hideth Thee.

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.


~ Lyrics by Walter Chalmers Smith (1824-1908)
