Psalm 29

by
 Storm and thunder.
Give to the Lord, ye sons of fame, Give to {he Lord renown and power, Ascribe due honors to his name, And his eternal might adore.
The Lord proclaims his power aloud Over the ocean and the land; His voice divides the wat'ry cloud, And lightnings blaze at his command.
He speaks, and tempest, hail, and wind, Lay the wide forest bare around: The fearful hart and frighted hind Leap at the terror of the sound.
To Lebanon he turns his voice, And lo, the stately cedars break; The mountains tremble at the noise, The valleys roar, the deserts quake.
The Lord sits sovereign on the flood, The Thund'rer reigns for ever king; But makes his church his blest abode, Where we his awful glories sing.
In gentler language there, the Lord The counsels of his grace imparts; Amidst the raging storm, his word Speaks peace and courage to our hearts.
