1 The LORD is King: tremble, O earth, and fear him,
The God of heaven, by angel hosts adored;
His people bow before him and revere him,
So great and awesome: holy is the LORD!

2 The LORD loves right: only on this foundation
Can equity and goodness be assured;
He instituted justice in his nation
Sing forth his praises: holy is the LORD!

3 When Israel's priests called on the LORD to save them,
He granted them the blessings they implored;
They kept the statutes and decrees he gave them,
His holy people: holy is the LORD!

4 O LORD our God, you answered all who sought you:
You punished sins, but sinners you restored;
Let all the nations worship and exalt you,
Proclaiming: holy is our God the LORD!
