GREAT is our redeeming Lord,

By A Collection of Hymns

      7s & 6s. Psalm xlviii.
      1 GREAT is our redeeming Lord,
      In power, and truth, and grace
      Him, by highest heaven adored,
      His church on earth doth praise:
      In the city of our God,
      In his holy mount below,
      Publish, spread his name abroad,
      And all his greatness show.

      2 For thy loving-kindness, Lord,
      We in thy temple stay;
      Here thy faithful love record,
      Thy saving power display:
      With thy name thy praise is known,
      Glorious thy perfections shine;
      Earth's remotest bounds shall own
      Thy works are all divine.

      3 See the gospel church secure,
      And founded on a rock;
      All her promises are sure;
      Her bulwarks who can shock?
      Count her every precious shrine;
      Tell, to after-ages tell,
      Fortified by power divine,
      The church can never fail.

      4 Zion's God is all our own,
      Who on his love rely;
      We his pardoning love have known,
      And live to Christ, and die:
      To the new Jerusalem
      He our faithful guide shall be:
      Him we claim, and rest in him,
      Through all eternity.
