Before the Lord’s eternal throne

Before the Lord’s eternal throne,
all nations, bow with holy joy;
know that the Lord is God alone,
he can create and can destroy.

2. His sovereign power, without our aid,
formed us and fashioned us of old;
and when like wandering sheep we strayed,
he brought us back into his fold.

3. We’ll crowd your gates with thankful songs,
high as the heavens our voices raise;
and earth, with her ten thousand tongues,
shall fill your courts with joyful praise.

4. Wide as the world is your command,
vast as eternity your love;
firm as a rock your truth shall stand
when rolling years have ceased to move.
