DEFORE Jehovah's awful throne,
He can create, and He destroy.
Made us of clay, and formed us men; And when like wandering sheep we strayed,
He brought us to His fold again. 3 We are His people, we His care,
Our souls and all our mortal frame :
Almighty Maker, to Thy name?
High as the heavens our voices raise ;
Shall fill Thy courts with sounding praise. 5 Wide as the world is Thy command ;
Vast as eternity Thy love;
When rolling years shall cease to move.
Sing to the Lord with cheerful voice;
Come ye before Him and rejoice. 2 Know ye, the Lord is God indeed;
Without our aid He did us make;
And for His sheep He doth us take.. 3 O enter, then, His gates with praise,
Approach with joy His courts unto; •
For it is seemly so to do.
4 For why ? the Lord our God is good,
His mercy is for ever sure ;
And shall from age to age endure. 5 To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
The God whom heaven and earth adore,
Be praise and glory evermore.

And all the solid ground.
Come, bow before the Lord :
He formed us by His word.
Nor dare provoke His rod ;
And own your gracious God.

With full and perfect love, His only Son ; Praise ye the Son, who died Himself to save us ;
Praise ye the Spirit ! Praise the Three in One!
