Majesty And Might



Tune: St Denio

('Immortal, invisible, God only wise')

Psalm 93

*********

The LORD reigns, He is clothed with great majesty

Come worship, come honour, His greatness now see

He has clothed Himself with strength and has girded

Himself, world is not moved, it He established

 

Your throne LORD, e'erlasting, established of old

Let your great workings, signs, and wonders be told

You are from e'erlasting, not other can be

Comparable to you, the LORD Almighty

 

The floods have raised their voice, have mounted on high

All creation praises you, earth, sea, and sky

The waves of the sea speak of your power, we

Confess you are great, and your marvels we see

 

The LORD on high is mightier than the noise

Of many waters, the seas their sound employs

To worship you LORD, for your testimonies

Are very sure, holiness with you agrees.

              Thanks Gold. Quite often the tunes I choose lend themselves to the hymn-poems I write.
