Jehovah reigns, his throne is high

Full Text

1 Jehovah reigns! His throne is high,
His robes are light and majesty;
His glory shines with beams so bright,
No mortal can sustain the sight.

2 His terrors keep the world in awe;
His justice guards His holy law;
His love reveals a smiling face;
His truth and promise seal the grace.

3 Thro' all His works His wisdom shines,
And baffles Satan's deep designs;

4 And will this glorious Lord descend
To be my Father and my Friend?
Then let my songs with angels join;
Heav'n is secure, if God be mine.
