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
