|66 (1)||Psalm 66 Version 1||CM|
|LET all the earth revere the Lord,
Sing praises to His name;
With heart and voice and joy record
His honours and His fame.
|2||Say to the God Who shakes the sky,
How mighty, Lord, art Thou!
Before Thy presence sinners fly,
Or at Thy feet they bow!
|3||O bless our God and never cease;
How much ought we to praise!
He keeps our life, maintains our peace,
And guides us in our ways.
|4||Using affliction’s evil day,
He makes our graces shine;
As burns the furnace dross away
The silver to refine.
|5||Through waters deep and trying ways,
We march at Thy command;
Led to possess the promised place,
By Thine unerring hand.
|6||O, let His faithful servants tell,
How by redeeming love
Their souls are saved from death and hell
To share the joys above.
|Isaac Watts, 1674-1748‡|
