Hymn of the Week: O Lord Our God

This week I've written a piece that focuses on glorifying God by extolling his attributes (holiness, glory, power, etc.). It's set to the tune of the 19th century hymn "Footsteps of Jesus." 

O Lord Our God

Lord, you reign in your holy splendor;
Praise to your name!
You are good in unending measure,
Ever the same.

     We come before you in wonder, love, and awe;
     You are holy and we adore you, O Lord our God!

Lord, you shine in the light of glory,
Lovely and true;
In your Temple we all cry "Holy,"
Worshiping you.

     We come before you in wonder, love, and awe;
     You are glorious and we adore you, O Lord our God!

Lord, your power is vast and endless,
Sovereign and just;
In your love you are swift to save us:
In you we trust.

     We come before you in wonder, love, and awe;
     You are mighty and we adore you, O Lord our God!

Lord, your greatness calls forth our praises:
Worthy are you;
For your grace always will amaze us:
Glory to you!

     We come before you in wonder, love, and awe;
     You are worthy and we adore you, O Lord our God!
