Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

99. How Lovely on the Mountains (Our God Reigns)

1 How lovely on the mountains are the feet of him
who brings good news, good news;
announcing peace, proclaiming news of happiness:
our God reigns, our God reigns.

Refrain:
Our God reigns, our God reigns,
our God reigns, our God reigns.

2 He had no stately form, he had no majesty,
that we should be drawn to him.
He was despised and we took no account of him,
yet now he reigns with the Most High. [Refrain]

3 It was our sin and guilt that bruised and wounded him;
it was our sin that brought him down.
When we like sheep had gone astray, our Shepherd came,
And on his shoulders bore our shame. [Refrain]

4 Out of the tomb He came with grace and majesty;
he is alive, he is alive.
God loves us so; see Jesus' hands, his feet, his side.
Yes, we know, he is alive. [Refrain]
