View Lyrics
Yahweh is great; with worthy praise
sing of His pow'r, His name confess,
within the city of our God,
upon His mount of holiness.

Zion is filled with beauty fair,
joy of all nations, every land;
the city of the mighty King
in majesty securely stands.

Within her dwellings for defense
our God has made His presence known,
and hostile kings, in sudden fear,
have fled as ships by tempests blown.

With our own eyes we have beheld
wonders our fathers told before,
that God, who in His temple dwells,
will keep her safely evermore.
