Representative Text

1 Almighty Lord, Thou rulest,
In sov’reign majesty,
Thy power, Thy dominion wide
Is broader than the sea;
‘Tis higher than the heavens,
‘Tis brighter than the sun,
Ten thousand times ten thousand
Praise Thee, the mighty One.

Almighty Lord, the hosts of heav’n adore
and worship Thee as King for evermore.
Oh holy One, oh holy One,
Thou art indeed God’s well-beloved Son,
Thou art indeed God’s well-beloved Son,
His well-beloved Son.

2 And who dare vaunt his boasted pow’r
Before Thin awful throne,
Or try with feeble hands to harm
The blessed, holy One?
For earthly pow’r is nothing
If Thou display Thy might,
And evil deeds are harmless
Against the pow’r of right. [Refrain]

3 In matchless pow’r and beauty
The King of heav’n doth stand,
While hosts of angels ready are,
Awaiting His command;
And highest heav’n proclaims Him
The blessed Holy One,
So humble, yet so mighty,
God’s well-beloved Song. [Refrain]
