The Lord is great, so praise his name
And fear him above all.
He made the heavens and the earth,
In praise before him fall.
Honour and majesty are his
And strength and beauty too.
So peoples of the world give him
The glory that’s his due.
O worship him in holiness
Whose beauty is so fair,
And tremble too before his throne,
He reigns o’er all from there.
The world – he has established it
And so it shall not move.
He judges all the peoples well;
His righteousness to prove.
