Thou, O Lord, art God alone;
Everlasting is Thy throne;
Through the ages men shall sing
Praise to heav'n's eternal King.
Thou, enthroned above the skies,
Wilt for Zion's help arise;
Let Thy grace to her appear,
For the promised time is near.
If with love compassionate
We, Thy servants, mourn her state,
Wilt not Thou, O gracious Lord,
Help in Zion's need afford?
Lord, Thy glory shall appear,
Kings and nations then shall fear;
And Thy Name shall be adored
When Thy Zion is restored.
- Psalter Number: 276
