    Verse 1
    Before Jehovah's awful throne,
    Ye nations, bow with sacred joy:
    Know that the Lord is God alone;
    He can create, and He destroy.

    Verse 2
    His sovereign power, without our aid,
    Made us of clay, and formed us men;
    And when like wandering sheep we strayed,
    He brought us to His fold again.

    Verse 3
    We'll crowd Thy gates with thankful songs;
    High as the heavens our voices raise;
    And earth, with her ten thousand tongues,
    Shall fill Thy courts with sounding praise.

    Verse 4
    Wide as the world is Thy command,
    Vast as eternity Thy love;
    Firm as a rock Thy truth must stand,
    When rolling years shall cease to move.
