When the holy ones assemble, praise is raised to God.
No one in the heavens holds a torch unto the Lord.
In that council God is feared, the great and awesome mas-ter.
If you asked them, “Who is greater?” no one would reply.
God of hosts, who is as mighty as you are, O Lord?
Faithfulness surrounds you God. You rule the raging sea.
You can still the rising waves; you’re stronger than all dan-gers.
Enemies don’t stand a chance you scatter them abroad.
All the heavens and the earth belong, O Lord, to you.
Everything created and what’s re-created, too.
There’s no place unknown to y-ou; mountains, valleys praise your name.
You are mighty, strong to save, and worthy of our praise.
Righteousness and justice are the hallmarks of your rule.
Steadfast love and faithfulness belong, O Lord, to you.
Happy are all people who walk in your light, O God, each day.
In your love we live securely, shielded all the way.
