1. Be-fore Je - ho-vah's aw-ful throne, Ye nations, bow with sa-cred joy; 2. His sovereign power, without our aid, Made us of clay, and formed usmen; 3. We are His peo - ple, we His care, Our souls, and all our mor-tal frame;

24 4

Know that the Lord is God a - lone; He can cre - ate, and He de-stroy. And when, like wandering sheep we strayed, He brought us to His fold a - gain. What last - ing hon - ors shall we rear, Al-might-y Ma-ker, to Thy name?

4 We'll crowd Thy gates with thankful songs,

High as the heavens our voices raise;
And earth, with her ten thousand tongues,

Shall fill Thy courts with sounding praise.
5 Wide as the world is Thy command,

Vast as eternity, Thy love;
Firm as a rock Thy truth shall stand,

When rolling years shall cease to move.
