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]
