66. God Is Known among His People

1 God is known among his people,
every mouth his praises fill;
from of old he has established
his abode on Zion's hill;
there he broke the sword and arrow,
bade the noise of war be still.

2 Excellent and glorious are you,
with your trophies from the fray;
you have slain the mighty warriors,
wrapped in sleep of death are they;
when your anger once is risen,
who can stand in that dread day?

3 When from heav'n your sentence sounded,
all the earth in fear was still,
while to save the meek and lowly
God in judgment wrought his will;
e'en the wrath of man shall praise you,
your designs it shall fulfil.

4 Vow and pay unto Jehovah,
him your God forever own;
all men, bring your gifts before him
worship him, and him alone;
mighty kings obey and fear him,
princes bow before his throne.
