5139. O Lord Most High

1. O Lord most high, with all my heart
Thy wondrous works I will proclaim;
I will be glad and give Thee thanks
And sing the praises of Thy name.

2. The Lord, the everlasting King,
Is seated on His judgment throne;
The righteous Judge of all the world
Will make His perfect justice known.

3. Jehovah will a refuge prove,
A refuge strong for all oppressed,
A safe retreat, where weary souls
In troublous times may surely rest.

4. All they, O Lord, that know Thy name
Their confidence in Thee will place,
For Thou hast ne’er forsaken them
Who earnestly have sought Thy face.

5. Sing praises to the Lord most high;
To Him who doth in Zion dwell;
Declare His mighty deeds abroad,
His deeds among the nations tell.
