Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised

1
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.

Glory be to God who is greatly to be praise!!!

The words of this song ended my prayers this afternoon and the song came straight to me. I wanted to sing along with an instrument playing and I found it here. It's very lifting listening and singing.

Father you are great and worthy of all praise!!!

This has been one of my favourite songs as far back as 1980s while in secondary school. In fact, the message I gave in the church on Sunday was "Great is the Lord" - Psalm 48:1. Thanks, God bless you.

I've been looking for this hymn for only God knows how long. The rhythm have been in my heart since age 3. You can't imagine how well my spirit blends with it. Thank you.

I am to deliver a talk in chapel this morning. The Lord woke me up past 2 am. As I was writing songs to talk about, I dosed off and woke up singing this one 'Great is the Lord. Psalm 48:1-2. I browse to know more, and I found this site. Great is the Lord...'It's one of the most popular worship song in Nigeria! Others include; there is none Holy as the Lord... By Hanna 1 Sam 2:2, Thou art worthy O Lord Rev. 4:11...by 24 elders, Be blessed as you praise Him today!

I had a dream and saw the mighty house of God being constructed in the dream. The house was so great and beautiful that I started singing this song. I had to wake up to see if I can get the song and the place it is in the Bible so that I can always read it to remember this dream. God is great.
