Ye mighty rulers of the land,
Give praise and glory to the Lord;
And while before His throne ye stand,
His great and powerful acts record.
O render unto God above
The honors which to Him belong;
And in the temple of His love,
Let worship flow from every tongue.
His voice is heard the earth around,
When through the heavens His thunders roll;
The troubled ocean hears the sound,
And yields itself to His control.
When He upon the lightning rides,
His voice in loudest thunder speaks;
The fiery element divides,
And earth to its deep center shakes.
God on the floods has fixed His throne,
His government shall never cease;
He shall His power and strength make known,
And bless His chosen sons with peace.
