Hymnal: Trinity Hymnal #40 (1961) Meter: 8.8.6 D Hymnal Title: Trinity Hymnal Lyrics: 1 Ye righteous, in the Lord rejoice;
It well becomes the good man's voice
To sing Jehovah's praise.
With harp and hymn of gladness sing,
Your gift of sweetest music bring,
To him a new song raise.
2 For upright is Jehovah's word;
And all the doings of the Lord
In faithfulness are wrought.
In justice and in judgment right
The Lord doth ever take delight;
With goodness earth is fraught.
3 Jehovah's word the heav'ns hath made,
And all the host of them arrayed
His breath has caused to be.
He rolls the waters heap on heap;
He stores away the mighty deep
In garners of the sea.
4 Let all the earth Jehovah fear,
Let all that dwell both far and near
In awe before him stand;
For, lo, he spake and it was done,
And all, his sovereign pow'r begun,
Stood fast at his command.
5 He makes the nations' counsels vain,
The plans the peoples would maintain
Are thwarted by his hand.
Jehovah's counsel stands secure,
His purposes of heart endure,
For evermore they stand.
6 O truly is the nation blessed
Whose God, before the world confessed,
Jehovah is alone;
And blessed the people is whom he
Has made his heritage to be,
And chosen for his own.
Amen. Topics: The Church Covenant People; Fear of God; God Divine Perfections of; God Glory of; God Incomprehensibility of; God Power of; God Praise of; God Sovereignty of ; National Scripture: Psalm 33:1-12 Languages: English Tune Title: FRANCES
