117. God, the Lord, a King Remaineth

1 God, our Lord, a King remaining,
robed in majesty and light;
God gath robed himself and reigneth;
he hath girt himself with might.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
God is King in depth and height!
God is King in depth and height!

2 In her everlasting station
earth is poised, to swerve no more;
thou hast laid thy throne's foundation
from all time where thought can soar.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
Lord, thou art forevermore!
Lord, thou art forevermore!

3 With all tones of waters blending,
glorious is the breaking deep;
glorious, beauteous, without ending,
God, who reigns on heaven's high steep.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
Songs of ocean never sleep.
Songs of ocean never sleep.

4 Lord, the words thy lips are telling
of thine high eternal dwelling,
holiness shall inmate be:
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
Pure is all that lives with thee.
Pure is all that lives with thee.
