Hymn/Song Information

GOD THE UNIVERSAL KING




O all ye people, clap your hands,
And with triumphant voices sing;
No force the mighty power withstands
Of God the universal King.


Your utmost skill in praise be shown
For him, who all the world commands;
Who sits upon his righteous throne,
And spreads his sway oer heathen lands.


Loud praises to Jehovah sing,
In hymns of joy his love proclaim;
Sing praises to the heavenly King,
Adore and bless his sacred name.


The trumpet swells along the sky;
We hear the joyful, solemn sound;
The righteous God ascends on high,
And shouts of gladness echo round.


The Lord, who o'er the earth bears sway,
Sits on his throne of holiness;
The heathen now his laws obey:
Let all the earth his praise express.


---Alternative verses---


O all ye people, clap your hands,
And shout with triumph while you sing
Of God, who all the earth commands--
Of God, the dreadful, mighty King.
