Psalm 48: Great is the Lord, and greatly he

Meter: 8.6.8.6 Appears in 11 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 48 First Line: Great is the Lord, and greatly he Lyrics: 1Great is the Lord, and greatly he is to be praised still, Within the city of our God, upon his holy hill. 2Mount Sion stands most beautiful, the joy of all the land; The city of the mighty King on her north side doth stand. 3The Lord within her palaces is for a refuge known. 4For, lo, the kings that gather’d were together, by have gone. 5But when they did behold the same, they, wond’ring, would not stay; But, being troubled at the sight, they thence did haste away. 6Great terror there took hold on them; they were possess’d with fear; Their grief came like a woman’s pain, when she a child doth bear. 7Thou Tarshish ships with east wind break’st: 8As we have heard it told, So, in the city of the Lord, our eyes did it behold; In our God’s city, which his hand for ever stablish will. 9We of thy loving-kindness thought, Lord, in thy temple still. 10O Lord, according to thy name, through all the earth’s thy praise; And thy right hand, O Lord, is full of righteousness always. 11Because thy judgments are made known, let Sion mount rejoice; Of Judah let the daughters all send forth a cheerful voice. 12Walk about Sion, and go round; the high tow’rs thereof tell: 13Consider ye her palaces, and mark her bulwarks well; That ye may tell posterity. 14For this God doth abide Our God for evermore; he will ev’n unto death us guide.

O Jesus, I Have Promised

Author: John Ernest Bode Meter: 7.6.7.6 D Appears in 570 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 48:14 Lyrics: 1 O Jesus, I have promised to serve thee to the end; be thou forever near me, my Master and my friend; I shall not fear the battle if thou art by my side, nor wander from the pathway if thou wilt be my guide. 2 O let me feel thee near me! The world is ever near: I see the sights that dazzle; the tempting sounds I hear. My foes are ever near me, around me and within; but, Jesus, draw thou nearer and shield my soul from sin. 3 O let me hear thee speaking in accents clear and still, above the storms of passion, the murmurs of self-will; O speak to reassure me, to hasten or control; O speak, and make me listen, thou guardian of my soul. 4 O Jesus, thou hast promised to all who follow thee that where thou art in glory there shall thy servant be. And, Jesus, I have promised to serve thee to the end; O give me grace to follow, my Master and my friend.

The Lord, the only God, is great

Appears in 21 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 48 Lyrics: 1 The Lord, the only God, is great, and greatly to be prais'd In Sion, on whose happy Mount his sacred Throne is rais'd. 2 Her Tow'rs, the Joy of all the Earth with beauteous Prospect rise; On her North-Side th' Almighty King's Imperial City lies. 3 God in her Palaces is known: His Presence is her guard: 4 Confed'rate Kings withdrew their Siege, and of Success despair'd. 5 They view'd her Walls, admir'd, and fled, with Grief and Terror struck; 6 Like Women whom the sudden Pangs of Travail had o'ertook. 7 No wretched Crew of Mariners appear like them forlorn, When Fleets from Tarshish' wealthy Coasts by Eastern Winds are torn. 8 In Sion we have seen perform'd a Work that was foretold, In Pledge that God, for Times to come, His City will uphold. 9 Not in our Fortresses and Walls did we, O God, confide; But on the Temple fix'd our Hopes, in which thou dost reside. 10 According to thy Sov'reign Name, thy Praise thro' Earth extends; Thy pow'rful Arm, as Justice guides, chastises, or defends. 11 Let Sion's Mount with Joy resound, her Daughters all be taught, In Songs his Judgments to extol, who this Deliv'rance wrought. 12 Compass her Walls in solemn Pomp; your Eyes quite round her cast; Count all her Tow'rs, and see if there you find one Stone displac'd. 13 Her Forts and Palaces survey; observe their Order well; That, with Assurance, to your Heirs this Wonder you may tell. 14 This God is ours, and will be ours, whilst we in Him confide; Who, as He has preserv'd us now, till Death will be our Guide.

Author: Thomas Olivers (1725-1799) Meter: 6.6.8.4 D Appears in 432 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 48:2 Lyrics: 1 The God of Abraham praise, who reigns enthroned above, Ancient of everlasting days, and God of love. Jehovah, Great I AM! by earth and heaven confessed, I bow, and bless the sacred name for ever blest. 2 The God of Abraham praise, at whose supreme command from earth I rise, and seek the joys at his right hand. I all on earth forsake, its wisdom, fame and power, and him my only portion make, my shield and tower. 3 He by himself has sworn, I on his oath depend: I shall, on eagle's wings upborne, to heaven ascend; I shall behold his face, I shall his power adore and sing the wonders of his grace for evermore. 4 There dwells the Lord our King, the Lord our Righteousness, triumphant o'er the world and sin, the Prince of Peace; on Zion's sacred height his kingdom he maintains, and glorious with his saints in light for ever reigns. 5 The whole triumphant host give thanks to God on high; 'Hail, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost!' they ever cry. Hail, Abraham's God, and mine!– I join the heavenly praise– all might and majesty are thine, through endless days.
