Ancient, Praise, Short

No Praises Are Adequate

Who on earth

can adequately sing your praises?

What can my eye see

with which I can liken you?

What music is there

with which to compare you?

You are above me, below me,

within me and without.

All exist in you,

all are from you,

you give us everything

you withhold nothing.

Who on earth

can sing your praises?

  • Origin unknown, supposedly a Jewish prayer from around or just before the time of the Birth of Christ.
