Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised!
In the city of our God,
In the mountain of his holiness.

Beautiful for situation,
The joy of the whole earth is Mount Zion.

We Have thought of thy loving kindness,
O God, in the midst of the temple.

According to thy name, O God,
So is thy praise to the ends of the earth.
Thy right hand is full of righteousness.
Let Mount Zion Rejoice!
Let the Daughters of Judah be glad!

Walk about Zion, And go round about her,
Tell the towers thereof.
Mark ye well her bulwarks,
Consider all her palaces.
That they may tell it
To generations following.

For this is our God forever and ever.
He will be our guide,
Even unto death.
