1 The Lord has taken his seat on the throne,
clothed with majesty, armed with might.
Now the world stands firm, to be shaken no more,
2 firm stands your throne from all eternity.
You are from everlasting.
3 The floods, O Lord, have lifted,
the floods have lifted their voice,
the floods lift up their roar.
4 But more grand than the great roaring waters,
more grand than the ocean waves,
grand on the height stands the Lord.
5 What you have ordained is most sure;
most sure shall your house stand inviolate,
O Lord, for ever and ever.
