Psalter 182

Verse 1
O Zion `tis thy God's command
That thou in strength securely stand;
O God, confirm and strengthen still,
Thy purposes in us fulfill.

Verse 2
O Thou, Whose glorious temple stands
In Zion, famed thro' heathen lands,
Kings shall Thy pow'r and glory see,
And bring their presents unto Thee.

Verse 3
Thou wilt rebuke the fierce and strong
Who hate the right and choose the wrong,
And scatter those who peace abhor,
The nations that delight in war.

Verse 4
The heathen princes yet shall flee
From idols and return to Thee;
Earth's sinful and benighted lands
To God shall soon stretch out their hands.

Verse 5
Praise God and sing His matchless worth,
Ye kings and kingdoms of the earth;
He dwells within the heav'nly height,
And utters forth His voice of might.

Verse 6
Ascribe ye strength to God on high,
His might transcendent fills the sky;
His glory and omnipotence
Remain His people's sure defense.

Verse 7
Forth from Thy dwelling place, O God,
Thy awful glory shines abroad;
Thy people's strength is all from Thee;
Blest be Thy Name eternally.
