Hymn/Song Information

SOVEREIGN AND MYSTERIOUS




The King of glory deigns to stoop,
And view his works beneath the skies;
To him all nations are a drop,
The dust that in the balance lies.


The mountains at his presence quake,
And burning coals before him fly;
The flood retire, the cedars break,
And rocks and hills in ruins lie.


His judgments are a boundless deep,
Beyond the reach of human sense;
Unsearchable his works and ways,
Of nature and of providence.


Armies of angels, hosts of men,
But execute his just decrees;
He kills and makes alive again,
Works when and where and as he please.


The Lord of lords, and Kings of kings,
Through endless ages still the same;
Let heaven an death his glory sing,
And all his matchless deeds proclaim.
