Isaac Watts.,

Description

Composed in memory of Rebecca Over. The text is Isaac Watts' Psalm 29.


Text

The Lord proclaims his pow'r abroad
Over the ocean and the land;
His voice divides the wat'ry,
And lightning blaze at his command.

He speaks, and tempest, hail and wind,
Lay the wide forest bare around;
The fearful hart and frightened hind
Leap at the terror of the sound.

To Lebanon he turns his voice,
And lo, the stately cedars break;
The mountains tremble at the noise,
The valleys roar, the deserts quake.
