Poem based on Psalm 93 by Isaac Watts
The Eternal and the Sovereign God
JEHOVAH reigns; he dwells in light,
Girded with majesty and might:
The world, created by his hands,
Still on its first foundation stands.
But, ere this spacious world was made,
Or had its first foundations laid,
Thy throne eternal ages stood–
Thyself, the ever-living God.
Like floods the angry nations rise,
And aim their rage against the skies:
Vain floods, that aim their rage so high!
At thy rebuke the billows die.
Forever shall thy throne endure,
Thy promise stands forever sure;
And everlasting holiness
Becomes the dwellings of thy grace.
