As a writer, I love hymns with expressive lyrics. The Lord deserves to be praised with the best language that hymn writers can possibly employ because He is so glorious.
But can human writers, with our many limitations, really describe the Lord with any degree of adequacy? Probably not. This side of heaven, none of us can begin to conceive of His glory in its fullness. Yet Sir Robert Grant, a member of English Parliament in the 19th Century, came wonderfully close to capturing it in the magnificent hymn that I want to feature today.
Please listen to Grant’s majestic hymn with an attitude of worship, allowing the words to direct your attention to the Lord’s incredible splendor. May the Holy Spirit use these powerful words to enhance your awe of our King.
