Great is the Lord Our God

Great is the Lord our God
And let His praise be great!
He makes His churches His abode,
His most delightful seat.

In Zion, God is known
A refuge in distress,
How bright has His salvation shown
Through all her palaces!

When kings against her joined,
And saw the Lord was there,
In wild confusion of the mind
They fled with hasty fear.

Oft have our fathers told,
Our eyes have often seen,
How well our God secures the fold
Where His own sheep have been.

In ev'ry new distress
We'll to His house repair,
We'll call to mind His wondrous grace,
And seek deliv'rance there.

--M.C.H. Davis
