A HYMN FOR TODAY
Almighty God, Your lofty throne
Has justice for its cornerstone,
And shining bright before Your face
Are truth and love and boundless grace.
With blessing is the nation crowned
Whose people know the joyful sound;
They in the light, O LORD, shall live,
The light Your face and favor give.
Your name with gladness they confess,
Exalted in Your righteousness;
Their fame and might to You belong,
For in Your favor they are strong.
All glory unto God we yield;
Jehovah is our help and shield;
All praise and honor will we bring
To Israel’s Holy One, our King.
