Full Text

1 Jehovah reigns, let all
The guilty nations quake;
On cherubs wings he sits
Let earth's foundations shake:
In Sion he is great,
Above all people high;
O praise his holy name,
Who dwells above the sky,
In awful majesty.

2 For truth and justice still,
Or strength and pow'r take place;
His righteous judgments are,
Dispens'd to Jacob's race:
Therefore exalt the Lord,
Before his footstool fall
In adoration low;
And with his pow'r, let all
His holiness extol.

3 Moses and Aaron thus,
Amongst the priests ador'd
Samuel his prophet too,
He heard, when they implor'd.
Before the camp, their guide
The cloudy pillar mov'd;
They kept his laws, and they
Obedient servants prov'd,
His ordinance they lov'd.

4 He heard, and oft forgave
Nor would destroy their race,
But oft his wrath was known
When they abus'd his grace:
Then, in his sacred courts,
Due praise to him afford,
For he who holy is,
Alone should be ador'd:
Ye saints, praise ye the Lord.
