Before Jehovah’s Awful Throne.

Stained glass at St John the Baptist's Anglica...

Before Jehovah’s Awful Throne.






1.      Before Jehovah’s Awful Throne,

Ye Nations, Bow With Sacred Joy;

Know That The Lord Is God Alone;

He Can Create, And He Destroy.





2.      His Sovereign Power, Without Our Aid,

Made Us Of Clay, And Formed Us Men;

And, When Like Wandering

Sheep We Strayed,

He Brought Us To His Fold Again.





3.      We Are His People, We His Care,

Our Souls And All Our Mortal Fame;

What Lasting Honours Shall We Rear,

Almighty Maker, To Thy Name?






4.      We’ll Crowd Thy Gates With Thankful Songs,

High As The Heavens Our Voices Raise;

And Earth, With Her Ten Thousand Tongues,

Shall Fill Thy Courts With Sounding Praise.






5.      Wide As The World Is Thy Command,

Vast As Eternity Thy Love;

Firm As A Rock Thy Truth Shall Stand,

When Rolling Years Shall Cease To Move. Amen!           











May God Bless Nigeria, America And Israel And Take Care Of Us; May God Make His Face Shine Upon Us, And Be Gracious To Us; May The Lord Lift Up His Countenance Upon Us, And Give Us Peace, In Jesus Christ Name, We Pray! Amen!


May The Grace The Lord Jesus Christ, And The Love Of God, And The Fellowship Of The Holy Spirit Be With You All. Amen!

  1. The Lord detests dishonest scales,
    but accurate weights find favor with him.

    2 When pride comes, then comes disgrace,
    but with humility comes wisdom.

    3 The integrity of the upright guides them,
    but the unfaithful are destroyed by their duplicity.

    4 Wealth is worthless in the day of wrath,
    but righteousness delivers from death.

    5 The righteousness of the blameless makes their paths straight,
    but the wicked are brought down by their own wickedness.

    6 The righteousness of the upright delivers them,
    but the unfaithful are trapped by evil desires.

    7 Hopes placed in mortals die with them;
    all the promise of[a] their power comes to nothing.

    8 The righteous person is rescued from trouble,
    and it falls on the wicked instead.

    9 With their mouths the godless destroy their neighbors,
    but through knowledge the righteous escape.

    10 When the righteous prosper, the city rejoices;
    when the wicked perish, there are shouts of joy.

    11 Through the blessing of the upright a city is exalted,
    but by the mouth of the wicked it is destroyed.

    12 Whoever derides their neighbor has no sense,
    but the one who has understanding holds their tongue.

    13 A gossip betrays a confidence,
    but a trustworthy person keeps a secret.

    14 For lack of guidance a nation falls,
    but victory is won through many advisers.

    15 Whoever puts up security for a stranger will surely suffer,
    but whoever refuses to shake hands in pledge is safe.

    16 A kindhearted woman gains honor,
    but ruthless men gain only wealth.

    17 Those who are kind benefit themselves,
    but the cruel bring ruin on themselves.

    18 A wicked person earns deceptive wages,
    but the one who sows righteousness reaps a sure reward.

    19 Truly the righteous attain life,
    but whoever pursues evil finds death.

    20 The Lord detests those whose hearts are perverse,
    but he delights in those whose ways are blameless.

    21 Be sure of this: The wicked will not go unpunished,
    but those who are righteous will go free.

    22 Like a gold ring in a pig’s snout
    is a beautiful woman who shows no discretion.

    23 The desire of the righteous ends only in good,
    but the hope of the wicked only in wrath.

    24 One person gives freely, yet gains even more;
    another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty.

    25 A generous person will prosper;
    whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.

    26 People curse the one who hoards grain,
    but they pray God’s blessing on the one who is willing to sell.

    27 Whoever seeks good finds favor,
    but evil comes to one who searches for it.

    28 Those who trust in their riches will fall,
    but the righteous will thrive like a green leaf.

    29 Whoever brings ruin on their family will inherit only wind,
    and the fool will be servant to the wise.

    30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life,
    and the one who is wise saves lives.

    31 If the righteous receive their due on earth,
    how much more the ungodly and the sinner!
