1 The Lord is king and has put on glorious apparel; ♦
the Lord has put on his glory
and girded himself with strength.
2 He has made the whole world so sure ♦
that it cannot be moved.
3 Your throne has been established from of old; ♦
you are from everlasting.
4 The floods have lifted up, O Lord,
the floods have lifted up their voice; ♦
the floods lift up their pounding waves.
5 Mightier than the thunder of many waters,
mightier than the breakers of the sea, ♦
the Lord on high is mightier.
6 Your testimonies are very sure; ♦
holiness adorns your house, O Lord, for ever.
