Jehovah ever reigns

Full Text

1. Jehovah ever reigns,
With majesty arrayed;
And strength begirts his reins.
The world unmoved is stayed.
2. Thy throne on high
Hath firmly stood.
For thou art God,

3. The floods lift up their voice,
The sea in tumult swells:
4. The Lord the fiercest noise
Of raging waves excels.
5. Most sure's thy word:
Strict holiness
Will ever grace
Thy house, O Lord.
