Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Please, before you close this box, would you today consider making a donation to Hymnary. Did you know that more than two million people came here in the first four months of 2017? These are people who have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site, and they are grateful for the resources they find here.

But, as you can imagine, keeping this site going does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

So, if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do. You can make your tax-deductible contribution through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.

Th' eternal Lord doth reign as king

The eternal Lord doth reign as king

Full Text

1 Th’ eternal Lord doth reign as king,
let all the people quake;
He sits between the cherubims,
let th’ earth be mov’d and shake.

2 The Lord in Sion great and high
above all people is;
3 Thy great and dreadful name (for it
is holy) let them bless.

4 The king’s strength also judgment loves;
thou settlest equity:
Just judgment thou dost execute
in Jacob righteously.

5 The Lord our God exalt on high,
and rev’rently do ye
Before his footstool worship him:
the Holy One is he.

6 Moses and Aaron ‘mong his priests,
Samuel, with them that call
Upon his name: these call’d on God,
and he them answer’d all.

7 Within the pillar of the cloud
he unto them did speak:
The testimonies he them taught,
and laws, they did not break.

8 Thou answer’dst them, O Lord our God;
thou wast a God that gave
Pardon to them, though on their deeds
thou wouldest vengeance have.

9 Do ye exalt the Lord our God,
and at his holy hill
Do ye him worship: for the Lord
our God is holy still.
