Psalm 48 by Rachel Higgs published on 2013-05-18T04:41:34Z Psalm 48:1–5, 10–11 to the tune Ostend. From the album 'Sing Praises and Rejoice' sung by the Brisbane youth group of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church of Australia. (www.epc.org.au) Great is the Lord, and greatly he is to be praised still, Within the city of our God, upon his holy hill. Mount Sion stands most beautiful, the joy of all the land; The city of the mighty King on her north side doth stand. The Lord within her palaces is for a refuge known. For, lo, the kings that gather'd were together, by have gone But when they did behold the same, they, wond'ring, would not stay; But, being troubled at the sight, they thence did haste away. O Lord, according to thy name, through all the earth's thy praise; And thy right hand, O Lord, is full of righteousness always. Because thy judgments are made known, let Sion mount rejoice; Of Judah let the daughters all send forth a cheerful voice.
