Why do the rest-less heathen madly rage?

What haughty schemes are they in vain contriving? 

Dm........Am.Dm.C.Dm....G...DmAm 
The kings and.. rul---ers of the earth engage 

Dm....G.Dm.AmG..Dm.GDm..AmDm 
In rash attempts to plot their empty striv--ing. 

Dm...............Am.............G..Dm.GAmDm 
They stand prepared, they all conspire to-ge--ther

Cast off their chains, their shackles from us fling."

The LORD, who sits enthroned in heaven on high,

"Upon mount Zion, on My ho--ly hill."

Dm....G.Dm.AmG..DmG..Dm.AmDm 
This very day. To Thee I'll give the nations.

Their lands shalt Thou possess, both near and far.
