3665. Let Sion in Her King Rejoice

1 Let Sion in her king rejoice;
Though tyrants rage, and kingdoms rise,
He utters His almighty voice,
The nations melt, the tumult dies.

2 The Lord of old for Jacob fought,
And Jacob’s God is still our aid:
Behold the works His hand has wrought,
What desolations He has made!

3 From sea to sea, through all the shores,
He makes the noise of battle cease;
When from on high His thunder roars,
He awes the trembling world to peace.

4 He breaks the bow, He cuts the spear,
Chariots He burns with heav’nly flame;
Keep silence, all the earth, and hear
The sound and glory of His name.

5 Be still, and learn that I am God;
I’ll be exalted o’er the lands;
I will be known and feared abroad;
But still My throne in Sion stands.

6 O Lord of hosts, almighty King,
While we so near Thy presence dwell,
Our faith shall sit secure, and sing
Defiance to the gates of hell.
