Great Is the Lord


    Great Is the Lord

    With dignity

    1. Great is the Lord; ’tis good to praise

    His high and holy name.

    Well may the Saints in latter days

    His wondrous love proclaim.

    2. The Comforter is sent again,

    His pow’r the Church attends,

    And with the faithful will remain

    Till Jesus Christ descends.

    3. We’ll praise him for a prophet’s voice,

    His people’s steps to guide;

    In this we do and will rejoice,

    Tho all the world deride.

    4. To praise him let us all engage,

    For unto us is giv’n

    To live in this momentous age

    And share the light of heav’n.
