Notice how God is both kind and severe
(Romans 11:22; NLT).

1. Matchless, mighty,
King of kings,
I worship you –
Please hear my sighs.

2. Peerless, perfect,
Lord of lords,
I honour you –
Please hear my cries.

3. Sacred, spotless,
God of gods,
I trust in you –
Please hear my call.

4. Flawless, faithful,
First and Last,
I bow to you,
Who loves us all.

He loves us with unfailing love
(Psalm 117:2; NLT).
