Original text and translations
The Lord, ev'n the most mighty God hath spoken,
and call'd the world from the rising up of the sun,
unto the going down thereof.
The heav'ns shall declare his righteousness;
for God is Judge him-self.
Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence.
there shall go before him a consuming fire,
and a mighty tempest shall be stirr'd up round about him;
Call upon God in time of trouble;
So will he hear thee, and thou shalt praise him.
