Psalter 207

Verse 1
God is known among His people,
Ev'ry mouth His praises fill;
From of old He has established
His abode on Zion's hill;
There He broke the sword and arrow,
Bade the noise of war be still.

Verse 2
Excellent and glorious art Thou,
With Thy trophies from the fray;
Thou hast slain the valiant hearted,
Wrapt in sleep of death are they;
When Thy anger once is risen,
Who can stand in that great day?

Verse 3
When from heav'n Thy sentence sounded,
All the earth in fear was still,
While to save the meek and lowly
God in judgment wrought His will;
E'en the wrath of man shall praise Thee,
Thy designs it shall fulfill.

Verse 4
Vow and pay ye to Jehovah,
Him your God forever own;
All men, bring your gifts before Him,
Worship Him, and Him alone;
Mighty kings obey and fear Him,
Princes bow before His throne.
