Psalm 89:3 Second Part [With Reverence Let The Saints Appear] by Isaac Watts

Psalm 89:3. 7 etc. Second Part
The power and majesty of God;
or, Reverential worship.

With reverence let the saints appear
And bow before the Lord,
His high commands with reverence hear,
And tremble at his word.

How terrible thy glories be!
How bright thine armies shine!
Where is the power that vies with thee?
Or truth compar’d to thine?

The northern pole and southern rest
On thy supporting hand;
Darkness and day from east to west
Move round at thy command.

Thy words the raging wind control,
And rule the boisterous deep;
Thou mak’st the sleeping billows roll,
The rolling billows sleep.

Heaven, earth, and air, and sea are thine,
And the dark world of hell:
How did thine arm in vengeance shine
When Egypt durst rebel!

Justice and judgment are thy throne,
Yet wondrous is thy grace;
While truth and mercy join’d in one
Invite us near thy face.
