During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

Jehovah he as king doth reign

Jehovah he as king doth reign

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 JEHOVAH reigns as King supreme;
let all the nations quake:
He sits enthron'd on cherubims,
let all the earth then shake.
2 JEHOVAH great in Zion is,
above all people high.
3 Thy great and dreadful name let them
praise for its sanctity.

4 This mighty King does judgment love,
and equity ordain:
Both judgment Thou and righteousness
in Jacob dost maintain.
5 Do ye the LORD our God exalt;
and bowing worship ye
Before the footstool of his throne:
the HOLY ONE is He.

6 When Moses, Aaron, with his priests,
and Samuel with all
Who sought his name, cry'd to the LORD,
He kindly heard their call!
7 He from the cloudy pillar spake,
and shew'd to them his will:
The laws and statutes He them gave
they labour'd to fulfil.

8 Thou didft them hear O LORD our God;
a sparing God Thou wast;
Tho' for their bold inventions Thou
didst vengeance take at last.
9 Exalt the LORD our God; and in
his holy mount adore,
Because the LORD, who is our God,
is holy evermore.
