Text Information:

Although it is not a direct paraphrase of any particular psalm, this text echoes “great is the Lord and greatly to be praised,” found in three of them (Psalm 48:1; 96:4; 145:3). Such songs of adoration lift up the heart and mind to God, asking nothing but to enjoy God’s presence.
