The Lord is king, and is clothed with majesty,
The Lord is king, and is clothed with majesty and honor.
The Lord is clothed with strength,
Where-with He has girded himself about.
The world also is established that it never be removed.
Thy throne, O God, is established of old,
Thou art from everlasting.

The floods have lifted up, O Lord,
The floods have lifted up their heads.
The floods have lifted up their waves,
The floods have lifted up their voice.

The Lord on high is mightier
than the noise of many waters.
Yea, the voice of the Lord is mightier
than the noise of many waters.

Thy testimonies are very sure.
Holiness becomes Thy house, O Lord,
forever and ever, Amen.

Hallelujah, Amen.
Praise ye the Lord, Amen.
