Hymn/Song Information

The mighty God the Lord hath spoken and




The mighty God, the Lord,
hath spoken, and did call
The earth, from rising of the sun,
to where he hath his fall.


From out of Sion hill,
which of excellency
And beauty the perfection is,
God shined gloriously.


Our God shall surely come,
keep silence shall not he:
Before him fire shall waste, great storms
shall round about him be.


Unto the heavens clear
he from above shall call,
And to the earth likewise, that he
may judge his people all.


Together let my saints
unto me gatheríd be,
Those that by sacrifice have made
a covenant with me.


And then the heavens shall
his righteousness declare:
Because the Lord himself is he
by whom men judged are.


My people Isríel hear,
speak will I from on high,
Against thee I will testify;
God, evín thy God, am I.


I for thy sacrifice
no blame will on thee lay,
Nor for burnt-off Ďrings, which to me
thou offerídst evíry day.


Iíll take no calf nor goats
from house or fold of thine:
For beasts of forests, cattle all
on thousand hills, are mine.


The fowls on mountains high
are all to me well known;
Wild beasts which in the fields do lie,
evín they are all mine own.


Then, if I hungry were,
I would not tell it thee;
Because the world, and fulness all
thereof, belongs to me.


Will I eat flesh of bulls?
or goatsí blood drink will I?
Thanks offer thou to God, and pay
thy vows to the most High.


And call upon me when
in trouble thou shalt be;
I will deliver thee, and thou
my name shalt glorify.


But to the wicked man
God saith, My laws and truth
Shouldíst thou declare? how daríst thou take
my covínant in thy mouth?


Sith thou instruction hatíst,
which should thy ways direct;
And sith my words behind thy back
thou castíst, and dost reject.


When thou a thief didst see,
with him thou didst consent;
And with the vile adulterers
partaker on thou went.


Thou givíst thy mouth to ill,
thy tongue deceit doth frame;
Thou sittíst, and Ďgainst thy brother speakíst,
thy motherís son dost shame.


Because I silence kept,
while thou these things hast wrought;
That I was altogether like
thyself, hath been thy thought;


Yet I will thee reprove,
and set before thine eyes,
In order ranked, thy misdeeds
and thine iniquities.


Now, ye that God forget,
this carefully consider;
Lest I in pieces tear you all,
and none can you deliver.


Whoso doth offer praise
me glorifies; and I
Will shew him Godís salvation,
that orders right his way.
