Original upload by OfficialLibera. This hymn, sung beautifully by Libera, a boys choir from the U.K., was written by the Puritan writer John Mason (1645-1694). The text appears as part of the first hymn in Mason's Spiritual Songs; or, Songs of Praise to Almighty God upon Several Occasions (1683). The original hymn, in praise of God, was based partly upon Psalms 103 and 138. Lyrics are below.

How Great a Being
Which doth all beings keep.
Thy Knowledge the only Line
To sound so vast a Deep.

Thou art a sea without a shore,
A sun without a sphere,
Thy time is now and ever more,
Thy place is every where.

How shall I sing that majesty,
Which angels do admire?
Let dust in dust and silence lie,
Sing, Sing, Ye Heavenly Choir.

Thou art a sea without a shore.
A Sun without a sphere,
Thy time is now and ever more
Thy place is every where.

How shall I sing that Majesty
Which Angels do Admire?
Let dust in dust and silence lie.
Sing, Sing, Ye Heavenly Choir.
