Psalm 47 (o For A Shout Of Sacred Joy)

Christ ascending and reigning.

O for a shout of sacred joy
To God the sovereign King!
Let every land their tongues employ,
And hymns of triumph sing.

Jesus our God ascends on high,
His heavenly guards around
Attend him rising thro' the sky,
With trumpet's joyful sound.

While angels shout and praise their King,
Let mortals learn their strains;
Let all the earth his honour sing;
O'er all the earth he reigns.

Rehearse his praise with awe profound,
Let knowledge lead the song,
Nor mock him with a solemn sound
Upon a thoughtless tongue.

In Israel stood his ancient throne,
He lov'd that chosen race;
But now he calls the world his own,
And heathens taste his grace.

The British islands are the Lord's,
There Abraham's God is known,
While powers and princes, shields and swords,
Submit before his throne.

Psalm 48:1 (great Is The Lord Our God)
Psalm 48:1. 1-8. First PartThe church is the honour and safety of a nation.(Great is the Lord our God,And let his praise be great;He makes his churches his abode,His most delightful seat. These temples of his grace,How beautiful they stand!The honours of our native place,And bulwarks of our land.) In Sion God is knownA refuge in distress;How bright has his salvation shoneThro' all her palaces! When kings against her join'd,And saw the Lord was there,In wild confusion of the mindThey fled with hasty tear. When navies tall and proudAttempt to spoil our peace,He sends his tempests roaring loud,And sinks them in

Psalm 46:2 Second Part (let Sion In Her King Rejoice)
God fights for his church.Let Sion in her King rejoice,Tho' tyrants rage and kingdoms rise;He utters his almighty voice,The nations melt, the tumult dies.The Lord of old for Jacob fought,And Jacob's God is still our aid;Behold the works his hand has wrought,What desolations he has made!From sea to sea, thro' all the shores,He makes the noise of battle cease;When from on high his thunder roars,He awes the trembling world to peace.He breaks the bow, he cuts the spear,Chariots he burns with heavenly flame;Keep silence all the earth, and hearThe sound and glory of his Name."Be still, and learn that I am
