PRAISE TO THE HOLIEST

1.    Praise to the holiest in the height
And in the depth be praised
In all his words most wonderful
Most sure in all his ways.

2.    O living wisdom of our God
When all is sin and shame
A second Adam to the fight
And to the rescue came.

3.    O wisest love that flesh and blood
Which did in Adam fall,
Should strive afresh against the foe
Should strive and should prevail.

4.    And that a higher gift than grace
Should flesh and blood refine
God’s presence and his very life
And essence all Divine.

5.    O generous love that He who smote
In man for man the foe
Thee double agony in man
For man should undergo.

6.    And in the garden secretly
And as the cross on high,
Should teach his brethren and inspire
To suffer and to die.

7.    Praise to the holiest in the height
And in the depth be praised
In all his words most wonderful
Most sure in all his ways.
