Jeremiah Clark, 1670-1707
1 GREAT is the Lord, and greatly he
Is to be praised still,
Within the city of our God,
Upon his holy hill.
2 Mount Zion stands most beautiful,
The joy of all the land;
The city of the mighty King
Upon the north doth stand.
3 The Lord within her palaces
Is for a refuge known.
4 For, 1o, the kings that gathered were
Together by have gone.
5 For when they did behold the same,
They wondering would not stay;
But, being troubled at the sight,
They thence did haste away.
6 Great terror there took hold on them,
With fear possessed they were;
Their .grief came like a woman's pain,
When she a child doth bear.
7 Thou Tarshish ships with east wind break'st:
8 As we have heard it told,
So, in the city of the Lord,
Our eyes did it behold;
In our God's city, which his hand
For ever stablish will.
9 We of thy loving-kindness thought,
Lord, in thy temple still.
10 O God, according to thy name,
Through all the earth's thy praise;
And thy right hand, O God, is full
Of righteousness always.
11 Because thy judgments are made known,
Let Zion mount rejoice;
Of Judah let the daughters all
Send forth a cheerful voice.
12 Walk about Zion, and go round;
The high towers thereof tell:
13 Consider ye her palaces,
And mark her bulwarks well;
That ye may tell posterity.
14 For this God doth abide
Our God for evermore; he will
Even unto death us guide.
