65. Before Jehovah's Awesome Throne

1 Before Jehovah's awesome throne,
all nations, bow with sacred joy;
know that the Lord is God alone,
he can create, and he destroy -
he can create, and he destr,oy.

2 His sovereign pow'r without our aid,
made us of dust and formed us men;
and when like wand'ring sheep we strayed,
he brought us to his fold again -
he brought us to his fold again.

3 We are his people, we his care,
our souls and all our mortal frame:
what lasting honors shall we rear,
almighty Maker, to your name? -
almighty Maker, to your name?

4 We'll crowd your gates with thankful songs,
high as the heav'ns our voices raise;
and earth, with her ten thousand tongues,
shall fill your courts with sounding praise -
shall fill your courts with sounding praise.

5 Wide as the world is your command,
vast as eternity your love;
firm as a rock your truth must stand,
when rolling years shall cease to move -
when rolling years shall cease to move.
