812. God, You Rule with Royal Bearing

1 God, you rule with royal bearing,
clothed in glory, love and light:
you have robed yourself majestic,
robed yourself with power and might.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
God who rules in depth and height!
God who rules in depth and height!

2 In its everlasting station
earth is fixed to quake no more;
you have laid your throne's foundation,
you yourself are evermore.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
God, you are forevermore!
God, you are forevermore!

3 With all tones of waters blending,
glorious is the breaking deep;
glorious, beauteous without ending,
God, who reigns on heaven's high steep.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Songs of ocean never sleep.
Songs of ocean never sleep.

4 God, the words your lips are telling
are the perfect and the true.
In your high eternal dwelling,
holiness shall live with you.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
God, your word is ever true.
God, your word is ever true.
