Paradox

Standard
(This poem is probably about the same era as the other “lost” poems I had, but I never actually lost this one.  The first line is rather difficult to sing. If you don’t get the diction perfect, it’ll come out as nonsense.)
Immortal stands in mortal form,
Human and yet divine.
Who can explore this mystery?
Who can fathom this design?
The King of kings, yet Servant, too,
The Father and the Son.
The Holiest of Holies,
The Three and the One.
All glory, grace and praise to Him,
For now and evermore.
For in the place of Holiness,
We only can adore.
Glory! We bow before Your name!
Glory! Let all the Earth proclaim!
Praises we will lift to You,
Our God, our Lord, our King!
We kneel before Your holiness,
We praise Your name and sing!
At His word, the Earth was formed,
And the stars and sky and sea.
And at His word, the Earth will end,
And we’ll step to Eternity.
By His breath we came to life,
And by His breath we’ll cease,
And by the Living Word of God
Our wonder will increase.
Eternity is not too long
To learn to sing His name.
And though our world has constant change,
Our God is still the same!
Glory! To the Owner of all praise!
Glory! To the Ancient of Days!
Praises we will sing to You,
Our Father, Lord, and King!
We kneel before Your holiness,
We praise Your name and sing!
