1 The Lord has heard and answered prayer
and saved his people in distress;
this to the coming age declare,
that they his holy name may bless.
2 The Lord, exalted on his throne,
looked down from heav'n with pitying eye
to still the lowly captive's moan
and save his people doomed to die.
3 All men in Zion shall declare
his gracious name with one accord,
when kings and nations gather there
to serve and worship God the Lord.
4 The earth and heav'ns shall pass away,
like vesture worn and laid aside,
but changeless you shall live alway,
your years forever shall abide.
5 You, O Jehovah, shall endure,
your throne forever is the same;
and to all generations sure
shall be your great memorial name.
