Jehovah reigns, let earth be glad,
And all the isles their joy make
With clouds and darkness He is clad,
On truth and justice rests His
Consuming fire destroys His
Around the world His lightnings
The trembling earth His presence
The mountains melt before His gaze.
The heav’ns His righteousness
Through earth His glory shines
From idol worship turn with shame
And bow before the living God.
Thy Church rejoices to behold
Thy judgments in the earth, O Lord;
Thy glory to the world unfold,
Supreme o’er all be Thou adored.
All ye that truly love the Lord,
Hate sin, for He is just and pure;
To saints His help He will accord
And keep them in His love secure.
For good men light and joy are
To bless them in the harvest time;
Ye saints, your joy in God make known
And ever praise His Name sublime.
