With Glory Clad, with Strength Arrayed

Representative Text

1 With glory clad, with strength arrayed,
the Lord, that o'er all nature reigns,

2 How surely 'stablished is your throne,
which shall no change or period see!
For you, O Lord, and you alone,

and toss the troubled waves on high;
but God above can still their noise,
and make the angry sea comply.

4 Your promise, Lord, is ever sure,
and they that in thy house would dwell,
that happy station to secure,
must still in holiness excel.
