"God is the King of all of the earth: sing ye praises with understanding.... God sitteth upon the throne of His holiness.... for the shields of the earth belong unto God: He is greatly exalted" (Psalm 47:7-9). "The Lord giveth wisdom: out of His mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.... He is a buckler to them that walk uprightly" (Proverbs 2:6,7).
God is the King who majestically wields
The power that rules His creation.
By Him the earth is protected by shields;
Without them would be devastation.
Sing praises to God now with this understanding:
The Lord is our Shield as well,
For He bore the judgment His Law was demanding
In order to save us from hell!
Sing praises to God with a sweet meditation
Through wisdom that He will make known,
For He is the Source of our Song of salvation,
Our God and our Savior alone!
