HYMN #476 O Worship the King, All Glorious Above! is based on Psalm 104. The hymn is a meditation on its theme of creation. Stanzas 1-2, which allude to Psalm 104:1-6, focus on God’s creation as a testimony to Divine “power and might.” Stanza 3 confesses the compassion of God toward creation. The text has few equals in expressive lyrics. Each of the epithets applied to God – King, Shield, Defender, Ancient of Days, Maker, Redeemer, Friend – as well as much vivid imagery – all combine to describe with literary eloquence and spiritual warmth the majesty and praise-worthiness of our God.
