63. Jehovah Reigns; Let Earth Be Glad

1 Jehovah reigns; let earth be glad,
and all the isles their joy make known;
with clouds and darkness he is clad,
on truth and justice rests his throne.

2 Consuming fire destroys his foes,
around the world his lightnings blaze;
the trembling earth his presence knows,
the mountains melt before his gaze.

3 The heav'ns his righteousness proclaim,
through earth his glory shines abroad;
from idol worship turn with shame
and bow before the living God.

4 Your church rejoices to behold
your judgments in the earth, O Lord;
your glory to the world unfold,
supreme o'er all you are adored.

5 All you 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.

6 For good men light and joy are sown
to bless them in the harvesttime;
O saints, your joy in God make known
and ever praise his name sublime.
