The God of Heaven

Representative Text

1 The God of heaven thunders,
Whose voice in cadent echoes
Resounds above the waters,

2 The desert writhes in tempest,
Wind whips the trees to fury,
The lightning splits the forest
And flame diffuses

Is to the throne ascended,
And we who are God's people,
Within these walls cry,
"Glory, glory, glory!"
