1. My heart is steadfast, O my God, And I will sing unto Thy laud, Yes, I will make a melody And give my thanks, O LORD, to Thee. Awake, O harp and lyre, a wake! For I will urge the dawn to break. I’ll sing Thy glory to the nations, Thy praise among their populations. Great is, O God, Thy steadfast love Right to the heavens and above; Thy faithfulness soars to the skies. Let over earth Thy glory rise; Let, reaching to the clouds, Thy praise Transcend our earthly human ways. Now rescue Thy beloved nation. O God, reply! Send us salvation!
2. The LORD spoke in His holiness And gave these steadfast promises: “Shechem and Succoth I’ll subdue, Moab and Edom conquer too. Manasseh’s tribe belongs to me, While Ephraim shall my helmet be, And Judah is my scepter glorious; In Palestine I’ll be victorious.” / Dewey Westra, 1961, & William Helder, 1972
