Representative Text

1 The Lord is great; with worthy praise
Proclaim His pow'r, His Name confess,
Within the city of our God,
Upon His mount of holiness.

2 Mount Zion, glorious and far,
Gives joy to people in all lands;
The city of the mighty King
In majesty securely stands.

3 Within her dwellings for defense
Our God has made His presence known,
And hostile kings, in sudden fear,
Have fled as ships by tempests blown.

4 With our own eyes we have beheld
What oft our fathers told before,
That God Who in His Zion dwells
Will keep her safely evermore.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
