1 How vainly strive ungodly foes
Christ’s growing empire to restrain!
And with presumptuous scorn oppose
The Gospel’s everlasting reign!
2 The Lord on His eternal throne
Derides their impotent designs;
His word is sure—Thou art My Son
In whom My perfect image shines.
3 Earth’s utmost bounds shall own Thy sway,
And ransomed heathen bow the knee;
While overwhelming wrath shall slay
The foes that will not worship Thee.
4 Lord, let our trust in Him be placed
Who reigns and intercedes above;
That we with trembling joy may taste
The blessing of a Savior’s love.
