Sung in Hebrew
The Lord of all did reign supreme
Ere yet this world was made and formed.
When all was finished by His will,
Then was His name as King proclaimed.
And one is He, and none there is
To be compared or joined to Him.
He ne'er began, and ne'er will end,
To Him belongs dominion's power.
He is my God, my living God;
To Him I flee when tried in grief;
My banner high, my refuge strong,
Who hears and answers when I call.
My spirit I commit to Him,
My body, too, and all I prize,
Both when I sleep and when I wake;
He is with me, I shall not fear.
Translation: Merzbacher 1855
