English.png English text

Sing unto God, all ye kingdoms of the earth, O sing praises unto the Lord.
Which dwelleth in the heav'ns over all from the beginning:
for lo, he doth send out a voice, yea, and that a mighty voice.
Ascribe ye the pow'r to God, over Israel, his worship and strength is in the clouds.
O God, wonderful art thou in thy holy places,
ev'n the God of Israel he will give strength and pow'r unto his people;
blessed be God. Amen.
