Lyrics

Jehovah sits en­throned
In ma­jes­ty most bright,
Appareled in om­ni­po­tence,
And gird­ed round with might.

The world es­tab­lished stands
On its foun­da­tions broad;
His throne is fixed, He reigns su­preme,
The ev­er­last­ing God.

The floods have lift­ed up
Their voice in ma­jes­ty,
But migh­ty is the Lord our God
Above the rag­ing sea.

Thy tes­ti­mo­nies, Lord,
In faith­ful­ness ex­cel,
And ho­ly must Thy ser­vants be
Who in Thy tem­ple dwell.
