Mighty God, while angels bless Thee, may a mortal sing Thy name?
Lord of man as well as angels, Thou art every creature's theme.
For the grandeur of Thy nature--grand beyond a seraph's thought;
For the wonders of creation, works with skill and kindness wrought;
For Thy providence, that governs through Thine empire's wide domain,
Wings an angel, guides a sparrow--blessèd be Thy gentle reign.
- from the hymn "Mighty God, While Angels Bless Thee," by Robert Robinson, 18th century
