The Great King : Psalms 24


The world and all that is in it belong to the Lord;
the earth and all who live on it are his.
He built it on the deep waers beneath the earth
and laid its foundations in the ocean deapths.

Who has the right to go up the Lord's hill?
Who may enter his holy Temple?
Those who are pure in act and in thought
who do not worshp idols or make false promises.

The Lord will bless them and save them;
God will declare them innocent,
Such are the people who come to God,
who come into the presence of God of Jacob.

Fling wide the gates,
open the ancient doors,
and the great king will come in.
Who is this great king?
He is the Lord, strong and mighty,
the Lord victorous in battle.

Fling wide the gates,
open the ancient doors
and the great king will come in.
Who is this great king?
The triumphant Lord - he is the great king!

Amen

Hymn 158

Mwari ndiye tsvingo yedu
Ndiye simba redu iye;
Pakumanikidzwa kose
Ruyamuro rwechokwadi.

Nyange nyika yosandurwa,
Nyange makomo okandwa
Mugungwa rakadzikisa,
Hatimbotya, tino vimba.

Nyange gungwa roriridza,
Richimedza namafuro
Mweya unovimba naye,
Unogonzwa runyararo.

Pane rwizi rwakanaka
Rwofadza guta raMwari;
Upenyu, rudo, rufaro,
Zvinoyerera mariri.

Mwari agere mariri
Haringambozunungutswa;
Rinozobatsirwa naye
Rinunurwe pakarepo.

Ndiye Jehova wesimba
Ndiye Mwari ano rudo
Ndi Mwari agere nesu
Mwari ndiye tsvingo yedu.

Amen
