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.

To me, this sings of the glory of the God of Abtaham, Isaac and Jacob, who with all the ransomed of the Lord, will praise and magnify the Lord God of Hosts in the New Jerusalem. Hallelujah! what a Saviour! John 3 verse 16. - read this verse and pray over it.

Beautiful Scripture set to music!

Correction: the correct wording is "beautiful for situation". This little song is verbatim from Psalm 48:1-2 (KJV), and this is the correct wording from the Scripture.

I woke up from bed this morning with this song in my spirit so I decided to google it and guess what I found it on this site and since I have been praising the Lord with it. Glory to the Lord Jesus Christ.

I knew this song 'from the womb'. It was one of my family's favorites for devotion while growing up; my dad loves it so much that we hardly missed it in any devotion.

Waking up at 3:15am to read some Psalms, pray and confess God's Words/promises, this beautiful song dropped in my heart. I needed the correct lyrics and the chapter of Psalms, then google directed me here...
