Great is the Lord our God And let His




Great is the Lord, our God,
And let His praise be great;
He makes His churches His abode,
His most delightful seat.


These temples of His grace,
How beautiful they stand,
The honours of our native place
And bulwarks of our land!


In Zion God is known,
A Refuge in distress;
How bright has His salvation shone,
How fair His heavenly grace!


When kings against her joined
And saw the Lord was there,
In wild confusion of the mind
They fled with hasty fear.


When navies, tall and proud,
Attempt to spoil our peace,
He sends his tempest, roaring loud,
And sinks them in the seas.


Oft have our fathers told,
Our eyes have often seen,
How well our God secures the fold
Where His own sheep have been.


In every new distress
We'll to His house repair,
Recall to mind His wondrous grace,
And seek deliv'rance there.

And let his praise be great:
He makes the churches his abode,
His most. delightful seat.


In Zion God is known,
A Refuge in distress;
How bright has His salvation shone,
Through all her palaces!


Oft have our fathers told,
Our eyes have often seen,
How well our God secures the fold
Where his own flock has been.


In every new distress
We'll to his house repair;
We'll call to mind his wondrous grace,
And seek deliverance there.


In every new distress
We'll to his house repair;
We'll think upon his wondrous grace,
And seek deliverance there.
