1 O God, we thank you that your name
is known and feared through all the earth;
your sentence waits the appointed time
and thunder brings your judgements forth.

2 The proud you caution not to boast,
the wicked, not to raise their eyes;
for you are king from east to west,
and you alone shall have the praise!

2A The proud are cautioned not to boast,
the wicked, not to raise their eyes;
for you are king from east to west,
and you alone shall have the praise!

3 We come before you, God of gods
your power shall cut the wicked down;
we worship you as Lord of lords
you lift us up to share your throne!

Michael Perry (1942 - 1996) after Psalm 75
