Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised
The city of our God upon His holy mountain
Mt Zion sits on high, the joy of the whole earth
Defended by our God, the city of our King.
The kings of earth passed by, their hearts were filled with fear
Amazed and terrified, they fled in their distress
They saw His mighty pow’r that breaks the ships at sea
And knew the Lord of Hosts would never know defeat.
We contemplate Your love within Your holy temple
As is Your name, O God, Your praise is never-ending
Righteous in all Your ways, Your judgments true and good
Mount Zion will be glad, her daughters dance for joy.
Now walk around Mt. Zion, take note of her great tow’rs
Go thru her palaces, and measure her great walls
Declare the things you see to children yet to come
Such is the living God Who keeps us safe fore’er.
