In lustrous robes of majesty
the Lord resplendent reigns;
his belt of power undergirds
earth's varied, vast terrains;
from long before the dawn of time
his royal throne remains.

The seas have lifted up their voice
with urgent, clamorous cry;
but mightier than the floods and waves
are you, the Lord most high -
your power can quell the ocean's roar
and clear the storm-filled sky!

Your truth is firm and upright, Lord -
dependable and sure;
the holiness that fills your house
inspires delight and awe -
and there, in robes of majesty,
you reign for evermore!

Based on Psalm 93
