Words: Brady and Tate, A New Version of the Psalms of David
1 Jehova reigns, let therefore all, the guilty nations quake: On cherubs wings he sits enthroned; let earth's foundations shake. 2 On Zion's hill he keeps his court, his palace makes her tow'rs; Yet thence his sov'reignty extends supreme o'er earthly pow'rs, 3 Let therefore all with praise address his great and dreadful Name; And with his unresisted might his holiness proclaim. 4 For truth and justice in his reign of strength and pow'r take place; His judgments are with righteousness dispensed to Jacob's race. 5 Therefore exalt the Lord our God, before his footstool fall; And with his unresisted might his holiness extol. 6 Moses and Aaron thus of old among his priests adored; Among his prophets Samuel thus his sacred Name implored. Distressed, upon the Lord they called, who ne'er their suit denied; But, as with rev'rence they implored, he graciously replied; 7 For with their camp, to guide their march, the cloudy pillar moved: They kept his laws, and to his will obedient servants proved. 8 He answered them, forgiving oft. his people for their sake; And those who rashly them opposed, did sad examples make. 9 With worship at his sacred courts exalt our God and Lord; For he, who only holy is, alone should be adored.
