Lyrics

Great is the Lord; His works of might
Demand our noblest songs;
Let His assembled saints unite
Their harmony of tongues.

Great is the mercy of the Lord;
He gives His children food;
And, ever mindful of His Word,
He makes His promise good.

His Son, the great Redeemer, came
To seal His covenant sure;
Holy and reverend is His name,
His ways are just and pure.

They that would grow divinely wise
Must with His fear begin;
Our fairest proof of knowledge lies
In hating every sin.
