This is the meter of the hymn "God, Who Madest Earth and Heaven" or the song "All Through the Night"

1.  Lord, your name is so ma-jes-tic
    In all the earth.
    Babes and child-ren sing your prais-es,
    Reach-ing to heav'n.
    You have built a might-y fort-ress,
    A safe ha-ven from all ri-vals.
    You stop all those who op-pose you,
    All en-e-mies.
2.  When I look up at the hea-vens
    Which you have made.
    At the moon and stars which you have
    Set in-to place--
    What are we, that you think of us;
    Hu-mans, that you care so for us?
    Yet you have made us in-fer-ior
    On-ly to you.
3.  With your glo-ry and your hon-or
    You have crowned us.
    O-ver all your great cre-a-tion
    You give us rule.
    Sheep and cat-tle, and all wild things,
    Birds and fish, and all sea crea-tures.
    Lord, your name is so ma-jes-tic
    In all the earth.
