Hymn 2:169. As The 148th Psalm [Lord Jehovah Reigns] by Isaac Watts

The same.

The Lord Jehovah reigns
His throne is built on high;
The garments he assumes
Are light and majesty;
His glories shine
With beams so bright
No mortal eye
Can bear the sight.

The thunders of his hand
Keep the wide world in awe;
His wrath and justice stand
To guard his holy law;
And where his love
Resolves to bless,
His truth confirms
And seals the grace.

Thro’ all his ancient works
Surprising wisdom shines,
Confounds the powers of hell,
And breaks their curs’d designs:
Strong is his arm,
And shall fulfil
His great decrees,
His sovereign will.

And can this mighty King
Of Glory condescend?
And will he write his Name,
“My Father and my Friend?”
I love his Name,
I love his word;
Join all my powers,
And praise the Lord.
