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 Heaven 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.
