What Does it Mean to be Great in God's Kingdom?
Great are You, O Lord, and greatly to be praised
in Your church, the city of our God!
Your 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 Your church and among Your people,
You have made Yourself known as a fortress.
As we have heard, so have we seen
in the congregation of the redeemed, the city of the Lord of hosts,
in the church of our God,
which You have established forever,
where Your Son reigns over Your people.
We have thought on Your steadfast love, O God,
in the midst of Your living temple, Your gathered people, worshiping You.
As Your name, O God,
so Your praise reaches to the ends of the earth.
Your right hand, Jesus, is filled with righteousness, which You give to Your people.
Let Mount Zion be glad!
Let the daughters of Judah rejoice
because of Your judgments!
Show us Your church,
Let us listen to her testimonies,
Show how You have redeemed and gathered a people for Yourself,
Give is the grace to consider well how Your Gospel saves,
that we may tell the next generation
that You are God,
our God forever and ever.
