1 The Lord doth reign, and cloth’d is he
with majesty most bright;
His works do shew him cloth’d to be,
and girt about with might.

The world is also stablished,
that it cannot depart.
2 Thy throne is fix’d of old, and thou
from everlasting art.

3 The floods, O Lord, have lifted up,
they lifted up their voice;
The floods have lifted up their waves,
and made a mighty noise.

4 But yet the Lord, that is on high,
is more of might by far
Than noise of many waters is,
or great sea-billows are.

5 Thy testimonies ev’ry one
in faithfulness excel;
And holiness for ever, Lord,
thine house becometh well.

Scottish Psalter and Paraphrases, 1800
