1 God, our Lord, a King remaineth,
Robed in His own glorious light;
God hath robed Him, and He reigneth;
He hath girded Him with might.
God is King in depth and height!
2 In her everlasting station
Earth is poised, to swerve no more;
Thou hast laid Thy throne's foundation,
From all time where thought can soar.
Lord, Thou art for evermore!
3 With all tones of waters blending,
Glorious is the breaking deep;
Glorious, beauteous without ending,
God, who reigns on heaven's high steep.
Songs of ocean never sleep.
4 Lord, the words Thy lips are telling
Are the perfect verity:
Of Thine high eternal dwelling,
Holiness shall inmate be.
Pure is all that lives with Thee.

|Author:||John Keble (1839)|
God the Lord a king remaineth. J. Keble. [Psalm xciii.] First published in his Psalter; or, Psalms of David, 1839, p. 241, in 5 stanzas of 6 lines. It was given in the Sarum Hymnal, 1868, Kennedy, 1863, and in several Public School collections, but its use is not equal to its merits. It is one of Keble's finest renderings of the Psalms.
