Psalm 48:1 (great Is The Lord Our God)

Psalm 48:1. 1-8. First Part
The 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 known
A refuge in distress;
How bright has his salvation shone
Thro' all her palaces!

When kings against her join'd,
And saw the Lord was there,
In wild confusion of the mind
They fled with hasty tear.

When navies tall and proud
Attempt to spoil our peace,
He sends his tempests roaring loud,
And sinks them in the seas.

Oft have our fathers told,
Our eyes have often seen,
How well our God secures the fold
Where his own sheep have been.

In every new distress
We'll to his house repair.
We'll think upon his wondrous grace,
And seek deliverance there.

Psalm 48:2. 10-14. Second PartThe beauty of the church; or,Gospel worship and order.Far as thy name is knownThe world declares thy praise;Thy saints, O Lord, before thy throneTheir songs of honour raise.With joy let Judah standOn Sion's chosen hill,Proclaim the wonders of thy hand,And counsels of thy will.Let strangers walk aroundThe city where we dwell,Compass and view thine holy ground,And mark the building well.The orders of thy house,The worship of thy court,The cheerful songs, the solemn vows;And make a fair report.How decent and how wise!How glorious to behold!Beyond the pomp that charms the eyes,And rites adorn'd with gold.The God we worship

Psalm 47 (o For A Shout Of Sacred Joy)
Christ ascending and reigning. O for a shout of sacred joyTo God the sovereign King!Let every land their tongues employ,And hymns of triumph sing.Jesus our God ascends on high,His heavenly guards aroundAttend 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 soundUpon 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
