Now Unto Jehovah, Ye Sons Of The Mighty

Representative Text

1 Now unto Jehovah, ye sons of the mighty,
All glory and strength and dominion accord;
Ascribe to Him glory, and render Him honor,
In beauty of holiness worship the Lord.

2 The voice of Jehovah, the God of all glory
Rolls over the waters, the thunders awake;
The voice of Jehovah, majestic and mighty,
Is heard, and the cedars of Lebanon break.

3 The voice makes the mountains and deserts to tremble,
Wild beasts are affrighted, the forests laid bar,
And through all creation, His wonderful temple,
All things He has fashioned His glory declare.

4 The Lord ruled in might at the flood of great waters,
A King Whose dominion is never to cease;
The Lord will give blessing and strength to His people,
The Lord all His people will comfort with peace.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
