Let all the earth fear the Lord: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him, for He spake, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast.@Psalm 33:8

From The Psalter (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania: United Presbyterian Board of Publication, 1912), number 86.

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.
