1.  The Lord God, the Might-y One

    Per-fect-ed in beau-ty he.
    Our God comes, no si-lence keeps,
    Fire be-fore him, tem-pests 'round.

    So that he may judge his own:
    "Bring to me my faith-ful ones,
    Who made cov-e-nant with me
    Through their sac-ri-fice!"  The heav'ns
    Call God just, for he is judge!
