Mrs. Steele


THE Lord, the God of glory, reigns,

In robes of majesty arrayed;

His rule Omnipotence sustains,

And guides the worlds His hands have made.


Ere rolling worlds began to move,

Or ere the heavens were stretched abroad,

Thy awful throne was fixed above;

From everlasting Thou art God.


The swelling floods tumultuous rise,

Aloud the angry tempests roar;

Lift their proud billows to the skies,

And foam and lash the trembling shore.


The Lord, the mighty God on high,

Controls the fiercely raging seas;

He speaks—and noise and tempest fly,

The waves sink down in gentle peace.


Thy sovereign laws are ever sure,

Eternal holiness is Thine;

And Lord, Thy people shall be pure,

And in Thy blest resemblance shine.
