Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Jehovah reigns let all the guilty nations

Jehovah reigns let all the guilty nations

Tune: [The Lord himself is King]
Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Jehovah reigns, let all
The guilty nations quake;
On cherubs wings he sits
Let earth's foundations shake:
In Sion he is great,
Above all people high;
O praise his holy name,
Who dwells above the sky,
In awful majesty.

2 For truth and justice still,
Or strength and pow'r take place;
His righteous judgments are,
Dispens'd to Jacob's race:
Therefore exalt the Lord,
Before his footstool fall
In adoration low;
And with his pow'r, let all
His holiness extol.

3 Moses and Aaron thus,
Amongst the priests ador'd
Samuel his prophet too,
He heard, when they implor'd.
Before the camp, their guide
The cloudy pillar mov'd;
They kept his laws, and they
Obedient servants prov'd,
His ordinance they lov'd.

4 He heard, and oft forgave
Nor would destroy their race,
But oft his wrath was known
When they abus'd his grace:
Then, in his sacred courts,
Due praise to him afford,
For he who holy is,
Alone should be ador'd:
Ye saints, praise ye the Lord.
