Great is the Lord! what tongue can frame
An honor equal to His name?
How awful are His glorious ways;
The Lord is dreadful in His Praise!
The world’s foundations by His hand
Where laid, and shall forever stand;
The swelling billows know their bound,
While to HIs praise they roll around.
Vast are Thy works, almighty Lord,
All nature rests upon Thy word,
And clouds, and storms, and fire obey
Thy wise and allcontrolling sway.
