Now Unto Jehovah, Ye Sons Of The Mighty

Representative Text

1 Now unto the LORD, all you 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,
in beauty of holiness worship the LORD.

2 The voice of the LORD is above all the waters;
in thunder the God of all glory draws nigh.
Lo, over the waves of the billowing waters
the LORD is enthroned in his glory on high!
The LORD is enthroned in his glory on high!

3 The voice of the LORD is almighty in power;
the voice of the LORD in full majesty speaks:
the voice of the LORD breaks the Lebanon cedars,
and like a young calf he makes Lebanon skip,
and like a young ox he makes Sirion leap.

4 The voice of the LORD strikes with flashes of lightning.
The voice of the LORD shakes the deserts of earth!
The LORD shakes the desert, the desert of Kadesh,
the voice of the LORD makes the deer to give birth;
the voice of the LORD strips the forests of earth.

5 And all in his temple, in worship, cry "Glory!"
The LORD rules the flood and his reign shall ne'er cease.
O may the LORD strengthen his people forever:
O may the LORD bless all his people with peace!
The LORD blesses all of his people with peace!
