Let all the earth Jehovah fear,
Let all that dwell both far and near
In awe before Him stand;
For lo, He spake and it was done,
And all with sovereign power begun
Stood fast at His command.
He makes the nations’ counsels vain,
The plans the peoples would maintain
Are thwarted by His hand;
Jehovah’s counsel stands secure,
His purposes of heart endure,
For evermore they stand.
O truly is the nation blest
Whose God before the world confessed
Jehovah is alone;
And blest the people is whom He
Has made His heritage to be,
And chosen for His own.
