“According to the Power” by Annie Johnson Flint

If our scanty measure were used,
How poor were the gifts of the Lord;
If our cups of thought and our pitchers of prayer
Were all that His love could afford.

But – above all our stammering tongues
Can voice of our deepest desire,
Abundant above all the pitiful good
To which our small minds can aspire;

Exceeding abundant above
The reach of our groveling thought;
So great is the fulness of knowledge and grace
His power to usward hath wrought.

Ephesians 3:20 Now unto him that is able to do
exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think,
according to the power that worketh in us, 21 Unto him
be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all
ages, world without end. Amen.
