1 CLOTHED in majesty sublime,
2 And girt with strength th' Almighty reigns;
3 And, through the wreckful course of time,
4 His hand the stedfast world sustains.
5 Wide doth the mighty thunder fill
6 The darkened earth with dread dismay,
7 But mightier far is he whose will
8 The lightning and the storm obey.
9 Deep, heaving under land and sea,
10 The earthquake uttereth his sound,
11 Awful though low; more awful he
12 Who holds its rage in prison bound.
[Page 408]
13 The powerful billows, huge and grand,
14 Rise swelling from the troubled main,
15 More powerful is the powerful hand
16 That doth their threatening rage restrain.
17 O Lord, adored! from race to race,
18 Men shall thy righteous laws proclaim;
19 And holiness become the place
20 Called by thy great and glorious name.
