Hymn/Song Information

Jehovah reigns let all the earth in his just




Jehovah reigns, let all the earth
in his just government rejoice;
Let all the isles, with sacred mirth,
in his applause unite their Voice.


Darkness and clouds of awful shade
his dazzling glory shroud in state,
Justice and truth his guards are made,
and, fixed by his pavilion, wait.


Devouring fire before his face
his foes around with vengeance struck;
His lightnings set the world on blaze;
earth saw it, and with terror shook,


The proudest hills his presence felt,
their height nor strength could help afford;
The proudest hills like wax did melt
in presence of th' Almighty Lord.


The heavens, his righteousness to show,
with storms of fire our foes pursued;
And all the trembling world below
have his descending glory viewed.


Confounded be their impious hosts,
who make the gods to whom they pray;
All who of pageant idols boast,
to him, ye gods, your worship pay.


Glad Zion of thy triumph heard,
and Judah's daughters were o'erjoyed
Because thy righteous judgements, Lord,
Have Pagan pride and pow'r destroyed.


For thou, O God, art seated high,
above earth's potentates enthroned;
Thou, Lord, unrivalled in the sky,
supreme by all the gods art owned.


You, who to serve this Lord aspire,
abhor what's ill, and truth esteem;
He'll keep his servants' souls entire,
and them from wicked hands redeem,


For seeds are sown of glorious light,
a future harvest for the just;
And gladness for the heart that's right,
to recompense its pious trust,


Rejoice, ye righteous, in the Lord:
memorials of his holiness
Deep in your faithful breasts record,
and with your thankful tongues confess.
