|29 (2)||Psalm 29 Version 2||10 10. 10 10|
|IN God’s own house the loftiest praises sing,
And own the Lord, of majesty the spring,
For all His blessings now His homage own,
Adoring fall before His awesome throne.
|2||His sovereign voice restrains the swelling floods;
He rolls the thunder through the darkened clouds;
His power confines to bounds the raging sea,
And nature’s laws His ruling word obey.
|3||His mighty voice commands, and all around
The greatest cedarstremble at the sound!
The Lord, for ever King, though tempests rave,
Enthroned so high above the seething wave.
|4||With reverent fear, His sacred name adore;
In troubling times, His powerful help implore;
Be Thou, O God, Thy people’s sure defence,
And on our lives Thy kindest peace dispense.
|Elizabeth Tollet, 1694-1754|
