KJV Text (alt. audio): Chapter 47:

     1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm for the sons of Korah. O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph. 2 For the LORD most high is terrible; he is a great King over all the earth. 3 He shall subdue the people under us, and the nations under our feet. 4 He shall choose our inheritance for us, the excellency of Jacob whom he loved. Selah.

     5 God is gone up with a shout, the LORD with the sound of a trumpet. 6 Sing praises to God, sing praises: sing praises unto our King, sing praises. 7 For God is the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding. 8 God reigneth over the heathen: God sitteth upon the throne of his holiness. 9 The princes of the people are gathered together, even the people of the God of Abraham: for the shields of the earth belong unto God: he is greatly exalted.(KJV)

1. Of the Father’s love begotten 
Ere the worlds began to be, 
He is Alpha and Omega, 
He the Source, the Ending He, 
Of the things that are, that have been, 
And that future years shall see 
Evermore and evermore. 

2. Oh, that birth forever blessed 
When the Virgin, full of grace, 
By the Holy Ghost conceiving, 
Bare the Savior of our race, 
And the Babe, the world’s Redeemer, 
First revealed His sacred face 
Evermore and evermore. 

3. O ye heights of heaven, adore Him; 
Angel hosts, His praises sing; 
Powers, dominions, bow before Him 
And extol our God and King. 
Let no tongue on earth be silent, 
Every voice in concert ring 
Evermore and evermore. 

4. This is He whom Heav’n-taught singers 
Sang of old with one accord; 
Whom the Scriptures of the prophets 
Promised in their faithful word. 
Now He shines, the Long-expected; 
Let creation praise its Lord 
Evermore and evermore. 

5. Christ, to Thee, with God the Father, 
And, O Holy Ghost, to Thee 
Hymn and chant and high thanksgiving 
And unending praises be, 
Honor, glory, and dominion, 
And eternal victory 
Evermore and evermore.
