Representative Text

1 Jehovah reigns; let earth be glad,
And all the isles their joy make known;
With clouds and darkness he is clad,
On truth and justice rests his throne.

2 Consuming fire destroys his foes,
Around the world his lightnings blaze;
The trembling earth his presence knows,
The mountains melt before his gaze.

3 The heavens his righteousness proclaim,
Through earth his glory shines abroad;
From idol worship turn with shame
And bow before the living God.

4 Your church rejoices to behold
Your judgments in the earth, O Lord;
Your glory to the world unfold,
Supreme o'er all you are adored.

5 All you that truly love the Lord,
Hate sin, for he is just and pure;
To saints his help he will accord
And keep them in his love secure.

6 For good men light and joy are sown
To bless them in the harvest time;
O saints, your joy in God make known
And ever praise his name sublime.

Trinity Hymnal, 1990
