1 Mighty God, to thy dear Name be given
Highest praise o'er all the earth and heaven.
All sols distressed,
All men oppressed,
Their voices raising,
Unite in praising Thy glory.

2 God is God, though all the earth lay wasted;
God is God, though all men death had tasted.
While nations stumble,
In darkness fumble,
By stars surrounded,
Countless aboundeth God's harvest.

3 Highest hills and deepest vales shall vanish,
Earth and heaven both alike be banished.
As in the dawning
Of every morning
The sun appeareth,
So glorious neareth
God's kingdom.
