OF THE 29TH PSALM.
to the Lord! O ye sons of the mighty!
All glory and strength which
unto him belong—
Let heart-glowing cheerfulness warmly incite ye
To wake with enchantment
your heavenly song.
The voice of the Lord echoes loud o’er the
oft times in thunder it bursts through the air—
The voice of Jehovah delights Sion’s daughters,
And sweetly his praises
they love to declare. [Page 148]
The voice of the Lord splits the cedars asunder,
Which raise their proud
heads on fair Lebanon’s hill—
makes them to skip like a calf with his thunder,
And the rage of the wild
flame is hushed at his will.
His presence the desert of Kadesh makes tremble,
The hinds of the wilderness
bring forth their young;
The oak’s sturdy strength is to him as the
breezes play lightly its foliage among.
The Lord on the floods sitteth monarch forever,
His power or glory can never
His strength from his people no mortal can sever,
He’ll crown them forever
with blessings of peace. [Page 149]
