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.
