Here is my latest hymn video! “O God Beyond All Praising” is my all-time FAVOURITE hymn. The lyrics by Michael Perry are profoundly moving and match up so beautifully with Gustav Holst’s epic Jupiter music (Thaxted). It was sung at my ordination to the priesthood and sends chills up my spine when I hear it!

I had fun producing this music video (and using some visual effects choir trickery at the same time). I hope you enjoy it!

The lyrics are phenomenal. I recorded the two verses that speak to me most:

O God beyond all praising,
we worship you today
and sing the love amazing
that songs cannot repay;
for we can only wonder
at every gift you send,
at blessings without number
and mercies without end:
we lift our hearts before you
and wait upon your word,
we honour and adore you,
our great and mighty Lord.

Then hear, O gracious Saviour,
accept the love we bring,
that we who know your favour
may serve you as our king;
and whether our tomorrows
be filled with good or ill,
we’ll triumph through our sorrows
and rise to bless you still:
to marvel at your beauty
and glory in your ways,
and make a joyful duty
our sacrifice of praise.
