1 The mighty Lord, the great Jehovah reigns;
Who form'd the worlds, and still the worlds sustains;
The Lord, who gives to humble worth his aid,
Girded with strength, in majesty array'd.
2 Firm and unmoveable his awful throne,
His pow'r no flux, no change of time has known.
3 Let the wild stormy sea tumultuous roar,
And threaten with her turbid waves the shore;
He stays her mad'ning fury at his will;
Aw'd by his dread behest, her waves are still.
5 What once our God ordains, is firm and sure;
What he once bids, for ever shall endure;
Long as this solid world shall stand, O Lord,
Shall last the solemn dictates of thy word.
