GOD'S TRUTH




Let all the just to God with joy
their cheerful voices raise,
For well the righteous it becomes
to sing glad songs of praise.


Let harps, and psalteries, and lutes
in joyful concert meet,
And new-made songs of loud applause
the harmony complete.


For faithful is the word of God,
his works with truth abound;
He justice loves, and all the earth
is with his goodness crowned.


By his Almighty word at first
heavens glorious arch was reared,
And all the beauteous hosts of light
at this command appeared.


The swelling floods, together rolled,
he makes in heaps to lie;
And lays, as in a storehouse safe,
the watery treasures by.


Let earth and all that dwell therein
before him trembling stand;
For when he spoke the world was made,
'twas fixed at his command.


He, when the heathen closely plot,
their counsels undermines,
His wisdom ineffectual makes
the people's rash designs.


Whate'er the mighty Lord decrees
shall stand for ever sure;
The settled purpose of his heart
to ages shall endure.


Our soul on God with patience waits;
Our help and shield is he;
Then, Lord, let still our hearts rejoice,
Because we trust in thee.


The riches of thy mercy, Lord,
Do thou to us extend;
Since we, for all we want or wish,
On thee alone depend.
