Representative Text

1 Give ye unto the Lord, ye sons
that of the mighty be,
all strength and glory to the Lord
with cheerfulness give ye.
2 O give ye glory to the Lord,
and his great name adore;
and in the beauty of holiness
bow down the Lord before.

3 The Lord’s voice on the waters is;
the God of majesty
doth thunder, and on multitudes
of waters sitteth he.
4 A mighty voice it is that comes
out from the Lord most high;
the voice of that great Lord is full
of glorious majesty.

5 The voice of the Eternal doth
asunder cedars tear;
Jehovah doth the cedars break
that Lebanon doth bear.
6 He makes them like a calf to skip,
even that great Lebanon,
and, like to a young unicorn,
the mountain Sirion.

7 The Lord’s voice cleaves the flames of fire;
8 the desert it doth shake:
the Lord doth make the wilderness
of Kadesh all to quake.
9 The Lord’s voice makes the hinds to calve,
it makes the forest bare:
and in his temple every one
his glory doth declare.

10 The Lord sat on the flood; the Lord
sits King, and ever shall.
11 The Lord will give his people strength,
and with peace bless them all.
