Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised

Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised,
  In the city of our God,
  In the mountain of His holiness.
Beautiful in elevation, the joy of the whole earth,
  Is Mount Zion, on the sides of the north,
    The city of the great King.
  Is Mount Zion, on the sides of the north,
    The city of the great King.

May I forget my right arm if I forget you, Oh true swim. I am on my first visit to Israel at the Sea of Galilee preparing to go to Jerusalem today and this song has been in my mind. We have not sang it in church for one or two decades but I still remember the words and the melody. I was blessed to find it on this site

I knew the man who wrote this song. His name was Robert Ewing from Waco TX. The lyrics should be "beautiful for situation" just like the scripture says! Not "elevation".

Many thanks for this site. It helped me learn the correct lyrics. I did not know that it was beautiful in elevation, I used to sing beautiful for all situations. This song really blesses my heart. God bless you huge.
