1. The Lord Eternal is most great and greatly to be praised!
within the city of our God, upon His holy hill.
Mount Zion stands most beautiful, the joy of all the land!
The city of the mighty King doth on her north side stand.
2. Within her palaces our God is for a refuge known,
for lo, the kings assembled; together they did come.
When they beheld it, all amazed, they fled in great dismay;
And being troubled at Thy sight, they thence did haste away.
3. As we have heard, we saw within the city of our God,
The city which the Lord of Hosts established evermore.
We of Thy lovingkindness thought in Thy most holy place;
O God, according to Thy name, Thy praise fills all the earth!
