1 The Lord forever sits as king;
For judgment sets His throne;
In righteousness to judge the world,
And justice give each one.
2 So shall the Lord a refuge be
For those that are oppressed;
A refuge will He be for them,
What time they are distressed.
3 And they that know Thy name in Thee
Their confidence will place:
For Thou hast not forsaken them
That truly seek Thy face.
4 O sing ye praises to the Lord
That dwells in Zion hill;
Among the peoples everywhere
His deeds declare ye still.
