The praises of Thy wonders, Lord,
The heavens shall express;
And in the congregation
Of saints Thy faithfulness.

Thou hast an arm that’s full of power;
Thy hand is great in might;
And Thy right hand exceedingly
Exalted is in height.

Justice and judgment of Thy throne
Are made the dwelling place;
Mercy, accompanied with truth,
Shall go before Thy face.

O greatly blest the people are
The joyful sound that know;
In brightness of Thy face, O Lord,
They ever on shall go.

Because the glory of their strength
Doth only stand in Thee;
And in Thy favor shall our horn
And power exalted be.

For God is our defense; and He
To us doth safety bring;
The Holy One of Israel
Is our almighty king.
