The ardor of sunshine, the azure of sky,
The hope in my yearning, the ache in my sigh,
The mystery of being I can’t understand:
Incomparable imprints of God’s hearty hand.
The goodness of virtue, the duty of right,
The force of my failure, the evil of night,
My desperate condition despite His demand:
Incomparable imprints of God’s holy hand.
The transcendent triumph of incarnate Word,
By sin-bearing favor forgiveness conferred,
The noblest exhibit of attributes grand:
Incomparable imprints in God’s hallowed hand.
