Thou great I AM,
Fill my mind with elevation and grandeur at the thought of a Being
with whom one day is as a thousand years,
and a thousand years as one day.
A mighty God who, amidst the lapse of worlds,
and the revolution of empires,
feels no variableness,
but is glorious in immortality.
May I rejoice that, while men die, the Lord lives;
that, while all creatures are broken reeds,
He is the Rock of Ages, the fountain of living waters.
