Hymn/Song Information

The Lord is King lift up thy voice O earth and all




The Lord is King! lift up thy voice,
O earth; and all ye heavens, rejoice!
From world to world the joy shall ring,
“The Lord omnipotent is King.”


The Lord is King! who then shall dare
Resist His will, distrust His care,
Or murmur at His wise decrees,
Or doubt His royal promises?


The Lord is King! Child of the dust,
The Judge of the all the earth is just;
Holy and true are all His ways;
Let every creature speak His praise.


O when His wisdom can mistake,
His might decay, His love forsake,
Then may His children cease to sing,
“The Lord omnipotent is King!”


Alike pervaded by His eye,
All parts of His dominion lie;
This world of ours, and worlds unseen,
And thin the boundary between.


He reigns! ye saints, exalt your strains;
Your God is King, your Father reigns;
And He is at the Father’s side,
The Man of love, the Crucified.


Come, make your wants, your burdens known;
He will present them at the throne;
And angel bands are waiting there
His messages of love to bear.


One Lord, one empire, all secures;
He reigns, and life and death are yours:
Through earth and Heav’n one song shall ring,
“The Lord omnipotent is King!”


And when our nightly prayers we say,
his watch he still shall keep,
crown with his grace his own blest day,
and guard his people's sleep.


---Alternative verses---


The Lord is King! who then shall dare
Resist His will, distrust His care,
Holy and true are all His ways;
Let every creature speak His praise.
Or murmur at His wise decrees,
Or doubt His royal promises?


The Lord is King! Thou Child of dust,
The Judge of the all the earth is just;
Holy and true are all His ways;
Let every creature speak His praise.


The Lord is King! exalt your strains;
Ye saints, your God, your Father reigns;
One Lord one empire all secures,
He reigns, and life and death are yours.
