Among His peo­ple God is known;
Most glo­ri­ous in His might and grace;
He makes Je­ru­sa­lem His throne,
Her peace­ful hills His dwell­ing place.

When God the right­eous Judge ap­peared
To save the meek from wrong and shame,
The earth stood still and great­ly feared;
Then forth from Heav’n His sen­tence came.

The wrath of man shall praise the Lord,
Restrained by His al­migh­ty will;
Your vows to God the King re­cord,
Your co­ve­nant made with Him ful­fill.

Let all to Him their pre­sents bring,
To Him whom all the world should fear;
Ye kings and princ­es, own your king,
With re­ver­ence and with awe draw near.
