Give ye to Jehovah, O sons of the mighty

Representative Text

1 Give ye to Jehovah, O sons of the mighty,
give ye to Jehovah the glory and power;
give ye to Jehovah the honour and glory;
in beauty of holiness kneel and adore.
2 The voice of Jehovah comes down on the waters;
in thunder the God of the glory draws nigh:
lo, over the waves of the wide flowing waters
Jehovah as King is enthroned on high!

3 The voice of Jehovah is mighty, is mighty;
the voice of Jehovah in majesty speaks:
the voice of Jehovah the cedars is breaking;
Jehovah the cedars of Lebanon breaks.
4 Like young heifers sporting, they skip when he speaketh;
lo, Lebanon leaps at the sound of his name!
Like son of the unicorn Sirion is skipping;
the voice of Jehovah divideth the flame.

5 The voice of Jehovah — it shaketh the desert;
the desert of Kadesh it shaketh with fear:
the hind of the field into travail-pangs casteth:
the voice of Jehovah the forest strips bare.
6 Each one, in his temple, his glory proclaimeth.
He sat on the flood; he is King on his throne.
Jehovah all strength to his people imparteth;
Jehovah with peace ever blesseth his own.
