Psalm 48. Magnus Dominus.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - Ninth Day - Evening Prayer.
  1. GREAT is the Lord, and highly to be praised *
    in the city of our God, even upon his holy hill.
  2. The hill of Sion is a fair place, and the joy of the whole earth; *
    upon the north side lieth the city of the great King: God is well known in her palaces as a sure refuge.
  3. For lo, the kings of the earth *
    were gathered, and gone by together.
  4. They marvelled to see such things; *
    they were astonished, and suddenly cast down.
  5. Fear came there upon them; and sorrow, *
    as upon a woman in her travail.
  6. Thou dost break the ships of the sea *
    through the eastwind.
  7. Like as we have heard, so have we seen in the city of the Lord of hosts, in the city of our God; *
    God upholdeth the same for ever.
  8. We wait for thy loving-kindness, O God, *
    in the midst of thy temple.
  9. O God, according to thy Name, so is thy praise unto the world's end; *
    thy right hand is full of righteousness.
  10. Let the mount Sion rejoice, and the daughters of Judah be glad, *
    because of thy judgments.
  11. Walk about Sion, and go round about her; *
    and tell the towers thereof.
  12. Mark well her bulwarks, consider her palaces, *
    that ye may tell them that come after.
  13. For this God is our God for ever and ever: *
    he shall be our guide unto death.
