HYMN. Tune, Denmark.

Before Jehovah's awful throne,

Ye nations bow with sacred joy;

know that the Lord is God alone;

He can create and he destroy.

His sovereign power without our aid

Made us of clay, and form'd us men;

and when like wand'ring sheep we stray'd,

He brought us to his fold again.

We'll crowd thy gates with thankful songs,

High as the heavens our voices raise,

And earth with her ten thousand tongues,

Shall fill thy courts with sounding praise.

Wide as the world is thy command;

Vast, as eternity, thy love!

Firm as a rock thy truth must stand,

When rolling years shall cease to move.
