God the Almighty, Uncreated Life,

List to my cry as I lie in the dust,

Fathomless glory all about Thee is;

Life Giver, my Creator, know Thee I must.


Oh, by the Cross, the passion of Thy Christ,

Oh, by the death of my Lord crucified,

From pow'r of darkness translate me today

Into the kingdom of Thy light to abide.


Fill from the center with Thine utmost filling,

Fill to circumf'rence, fill right to the brim;

Blaze forth, the light, the glory of Thy being

About and 'round me to the uttermost rim.


Life Uncreated, Thou most holy God,

Life-giving Spirit, oh, create in me

Something that speaks of Thee and of Thy glory,

Something compelling that will draw to Thee.


Father, I thank Thee that my quest is ended.

I reign in life with Christ upon the throne,

How satisfied to triumph now in Him,

The Cross the touchstone that makes me His own.
