Original text and translations
Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty.
Just and true are thy ways, thou king of saints.
Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name?
For thou only art holy:
for all nations shall come and worship before thee,
for thy judgments are made manifest.
