Oh, How Majestic And Glorious

Representative Text

1 Lord, I extol You with all my heart
And publicly give praise.
How great Your works: I delight in them all
And ponder them all my days.

Oh, how majestic and glorious
Are all Your deeds and ways!
Holy and awesome is Your name,
Worthy of all my praise!

2 Your righteousness will endure fore’er,
Your wonders come to mind.
O Lord, You’re gracious, compassionate e’er,
Providing for all mankind. [Refrain]

3 Your covenant You ordained fore’er;
Your works are faithful, just.
In awe we see Your mighty power;
Your precepts I will trust. [Refrain]

4 Your works are steadfast forevermore,
Upon Your love they rest;
Redemption You have provided Your flock;
Forever are we blest. [Refrain]

5 The fear of God is where knowledge starts.
For all who keep Your ways,
Lord, wisdom, understanding You give—
Let us give eternal praise! [Refrain]
