Hugh George Wetmore (b. 1937)
Hugh George Wetmore (b. 1937) is a South African hymnist, missionary and pastor.
Hugh enjoys congregational singing – and wants others to enjoy it too. He has served Jesus as a missionary and pastor, is an author and has taught on the staffs of the Union Bible Institute and the Evangelical Seminary of Southern Africa. For 22 years he developed and led the Evangelical Fellowship of South Africa (now TEASA). His songs have been sung in four continents, and have received awards in the UK Song-writing Contests. He has self-published Lyrics to Lift your Life (over 350 hymns, fully indexed), with some new tunes kindly composed or arranged by the talented Hazel Hudson. Having recently discovered Richard Irwin’s Hymns Without Words, he is grateful to tap into this rich resource, and link it to his own Lyrics. Hugh can be contacted using the form below.
Lyrics ~ 5 verses
Mysterious God, beyond my comprehension,
deeper and wider than the wisest mind,
Stretching beyond conceivable dimension,
beyond the grasp of finite humankind.
Mysterious God, mysterious God
revealed in Jesus, God-man mystery.
No single being could express your nature
You are One God, yet show Yourself as Three.
I stand before You as a finite creature,
numbers lose meaning in Your mystery. Refrain
News Defying Expectation Lyrics
News defying expectation,
Mystery compounds their fear.
Hear the bombshell exclamation:
“Grave is empty – He’s not there!”
Wrestling with this information,
In bereavement’s dark despair,
Searching for an explanation:
“Where’s His body – where, O where?”
Far beyond imagination,
More than boldest thought or prayer,
Cause for joyous celebration:
“Christ is risen! He is here!”
Metre: 87 87. Words by Hugh G ...
Hymn – Worship the Father – Lyrics
Worship the Father,
Worship the Son,
Worship the Spirit,
God Three in One.
Loved by the Father,
Saved by the Son,
Sealed by the Spirit,
God makes us One.

Mysterious God, beyond my comprehension, deeper and wider than the wisest mind, Stretching beyond conceivable dimension, beyond the grasp of finite humankind. Mysterious God, mysterious God revealed in Jesus, God-man mystery.
No single being could express your nature You are One God, yet show Yourself as Three. I stand before You as a finite creature, numbers lose meaning in Your mystery. Refrain
Humbled, I try to think of You as spatial, You’re everywhere now simultaneously; worthy of temples gloriously palatial, yet spurning these to live in mystery. Refrain
You live outside of Time that so confines me, I can’t imagine Your Eternity. Past, present, future: these constructs define me, Your timeless present is a mystery. Refrain
You are Almighty, infinite in power; what You decide is an accomplished deed. I struggle to be faithful for one hour, Your faithful rule is one more mystery. Refrain
