Elgar, Edward: Give unto the Lord, Op. 74
Give unto the Lord, Op. 74 (1914)
Give unto the Lord, O ye mighty,
give unto the Lord glory and strength.
Give unto the Lord the glory due unto His name;
worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.
The voice of the Lord is upon the waters:
the God of glory thundereth;
it is the Lord that ruleth the sea.
The voice of the Lord is mighty in operation;
the voice of the Lord is full of majesty;
the voice of the Lord breaketh the cedars of Lebanon.
Yea, the voice of the Lord divideth the flames of fire;
yea, the voice of the Lord shaketh the wilderness
and strippeth the forests bare.
In His temple doth every one speak of His glory.
Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.
The Lord sitteth above the waterflood,
and the Lord remaineth a King for ever.
The Lord shall give strength unto His people;
the Lord shall give His people the blessing of peace.
