41. The Praises of Thy Wonders, Lord

1 The praises of thy wonders, Lord,
the heavens shall express;
and in the congregation
of saints thy faithfulness.

2 Thou hast an arm that's full of pow'r;
thy hand is great in might;
and thy right hand exceedingly
exalted is in height.

3 Justice and judgment of thy throne
are made the dwelling place;
mercy, accompanied with truth,
shall go before thy face.

4 O greatly blessed the people are
the joyful sound that know;
in brightness of thy face, O Lord,
they ever on shall go.

5 Because the glory of their strength
doth only stand in thee;
and in thy favor shall our horn
and pow'r exalted be.

6 For God is our defense; and he
to us doth safety bring:
the Holy One of Israel
is our almighty King.
