Hymn/Song Information

The heavens are thine and still have




The heav'ns are thine, and still have been,
likewise the earth and land,
The world and all that is therein
thou foundedst with thy hand:


Both north and south, with east and west,
thyself didst make and frame:
Both Tabor mount and Hermon hill
rejoice and praise thy Name.


Thine arm is strong and full of pow'r,
all might therein doth lie;
The strength of thy right hand each hour
thou liftest up on high:


In righteousness and equity
thou hast thy seat and place;
Mercy and truth are still with thee,
and go before thy face,


That folk is blest that knoweth right
the joyful sound, O God:
For in the favor of thy sight
They walk full safe abroad:


And in thy Name throughout the day
they greatly do rejoice,
And through thy righteousness have they
a pleasant fame and noise.


For why? their glory, strength, and aid,
in thee alone doth lie;
And thy goodness which hath us staid,
shall lift our horn on high.


Our strength that doth defend us well,
the Lord to us doth bring;
The Holy One of Israel
he is our Guide and King.


Sometimes thy will to holy men
in visions thou didst show,
And thus didst say unto them then,
thy mind to make them know.


A man of might I have erect
your king and guide to be,
And set him up whom I elect
among the folk to me.
