Sing to the Lord Jehovah's name,
And in his strength rejoice;
When his salvation is our theme,
Exalted be our voice.
2 With thanks approach his awful sight,
And psalms of honor sing;
The Lord's a God of boundless might --
The whole creation's King.
3 Come, and with humble souls adore;
Come, kneel before his face;
Oh, may the creatures of his power
Be children of his grace.
4 Now is the time -- he bends his ear,
And waits for your request;
Come, lest he rouse his wrath, and swear,
|Ye shall not see my rest.|
Isaac Watts, 1719.
