Psalm 29

Words: Isaac Watts

Long Metre Tunes

Storm and thunder.
   1  Give to the Lord, ye sons of fame,
      Give to the Lord renown and power,
      Ascribe due honors to his name,
      And his eternal might adore.
   2  The Lord proclaims his power aloud
      Over the ocean and the land;
      His voice divides the watíry cloud,
      And lightnings blaze at his command.
   3  He speaks, and tempest, hail, and wind,
      Lay the wide forest bare around:
      The fearful hart and frightened hind
      Leap at the terror of the sound.
   4  To Lebanon he turns his voice,
      And lo, the stately cedars break;
      The mountains tremble at the noise,
      The valleys roar, the deserts quake.
   5  The Lord sits sovereign on the flood,
      The Thundírer reigns for ever king;
      But makes his church his blest abode,
      Where we his awful glories sing.
   6  In gentler language there, the Lord
      The counsels of his grace imparts;
      Amidst the raging storm, his word
      Speaks peace and courage to our hearts.
