Psalm 48

Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised :
 in the city of our God.
High and beautiful is his holy hill :
 it is the joy of all the earth.
On Mount Zion, where godhead truly dwells,
   stands the city of the Great King :
 God is well known in her palaces as a sure defence.
For the kings of the earth assembled :
 they gathered together and came on;
They saw, they were struck dumb :
 they were astonished and fled in terror.
Trembling took hold on them, and anguish :
 as on a woman in her travail;
Like the breath of the east wind :
 that shatters the ships of Tarshish.
As we have heard, so have we seen
   in the city of the Lord of hosts :
 in the city of our God, which God has established for ever.
We have called to mind your loving-kindness, O God :
 in the midst of your temple.
As your name is great, O God, so also is your praise :
 even to the ends of the earth.
Your right hand is full of victory let Zion’s hill rejoice :
 let the daughters of Judah be glad, because of your judgements.
Walk about Zion, go round about her, and count all her towers :
 consider well her ramparts, pass through her palaces;
That you may tell those who come after that such is God :
 our God for ever and ever, and he will guide us eternally.
