636. Great Is the Lord, Our God

1 Great is the Lord, our God,
And let His praise be great;
He makes His churches His abode,
His most delightful seat.

2 These temples of His grace,
How beautiful they stand,
The honors of our native place
And bulwarks of our land!

3 In Zion God is known,
A Refuge in distress;
How bright has His salvation shone,
How fair His heav'nly grace!

4 Oft have our fathers told,
Our eyes have often seen,
How well our God secures the fold
Where His own sheep have been.

5 In every new distress
We’ll to His house repair,
Recall to mind His wondrous grace,
And seek deliverance there.

Amen.
