1. Before Jehovah’s awful throne,
    Ye nations, bow with sacred joy;
    Know that the Lord is God alone;
    He can create, and He destroy.
  2. His sovereign power, without our aid,
    Made us of clay, and formed us men;
    and when like wandering sheep we strayed,
    He brought us to His fold again.
  3. We’ll crowd His gates with thankful songs,
    High as the heavens our voices raise;
    And earth, with her ten thousand tongues,
    Shall fill His courts with sounding praise.
  4. Wide as the world is His command,
    Vast as Eternity His love;
    Firm as a rock His truth shall stand,
    When rolling years shall cease to move.
