1. The LORD our God is King! / O earth, rejoice in Him! / All islands, coasts, and ocean, / Break forth in glad devotion. / Dark clouds of secrecy / Enfold His majesty. / The pillars of His throne / Are righteousness alone / And perfect equity.

3. The hills, as wax by fire, / All melt before His ire, / When God on His creation / Pours flaming indignation. / The heavens in awe express / His perfect righteousness. / Let all the nations see / His glorious majesty, / His royal power confess. / Dewey Westra, 1931; rev.
