Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised in the city of our God!
His holy mountain, beautiful in elevation, is the joy of all the earth,
Mount Zion in the far north, the city of the great King.
Within her citadels God has made himself known as a fortress.
For behold, the kings assembled; they come on together.
As soon as they saw it, they were astounded; they were in panic; they took to flight.
Trembling took hold of them there, anguish as of a woman in labor.
By the east wind you shattered the ships of Tarshish.
As we have heard, so have we seen in the city of the Lord of hosts, in the city of our God,
which God will establish forever.
