Representative Text

1 All lands, to God in joyful sounds
aloft your voices raise;
sing forth the honor of his name,
and glorious make his praise,
and glorious make his praise.

2 Say ye to God, "How terrible
in all thy works art thou!
To thee thy foes by thy great pow'r
shall be constrained to bow,
shall be constrained to bow.

3 "Yea, all the earth shall worship thee,
and unto thee shall sing;
to thy great Name shall songs of joy
with loud hosannas ring,
with loud hosannas ring.

4 O come, behold the works of God,
his mighty doings see;
in dealing with the sons of men
most wonderful is he,
most wonderful is he.

5 He led in safety through the flood
the people of his choice,
he turned the sea to solid ground;
in him let us rejoice,
in him let us rejoice.

6 He rules forever by his might,
his eyes the nations try;
let not the proud, rebellious ones
exalt themselves on high,
exalt themselves on high.
