Representative Text

1. Jehovah reigns with strength begirt,
And majesty arrayed,
The world immovably he fixed,
On sure foundations laid.
2. Thy throne is founded thence, thou art
From all eternity.
3. The floods, O Lord, lift up their voice;
They toss their waves on high.

4. The Lord, who dwells above, transcends,
In strength, the roaring voice
Of many waters, or the seas
Most fiercely raging noise.
5. Jehovah's testimonies are
Most sure, they cannot lie;
And everlasting holiness
Thy house should beautify.
