Jehovah reigns let therefore all

Jehovah reigns let therefore all

Published in 6 hymnals

Full Text

1 Jehovah reigns, let therefore all
the guilty Nations quake;
On Cherubs Wings He sits enthron'd:
let Earth's Foundations shake.
2 On Sion's Hill He keeps his Court,
his Palace makes her Tow'rs;
Yet thence his Sov'reignty extends
supreme o'er earthly Pow'rs.

3 Let therefore all with Praise address
his great and dreadful Name,
And with his unresisted Might
his Holiness proclaim.
4 For Truth and Justice, in his Reign,
of Strength and Pow'r take place:
His Judgments are with Righteousness
dispens'd to Jacob's Race.

5 Therefore exalt the Lord our God,
before his Footstool fall;
And with his unresisted Might,
his Holiness extol.
6 Moses and Aaron thus of old,
amongst his Priests ador'd;
Amongst his Prophets Samuel thus
his sacred Name implor'd:

Distress'd, upon the Lord they call'd,
who ne'er their Suit deny'd;
But, as with Rev'rence they implor'd,
he graciously reply'd.
7 For, with their Camp, to guide their March,
the cloudy Pillar mov'd:
They kept his Laws, and to his Will
obedient Servants prov'd.

8 He answer'd them, forgiving oft
his People for their Sake;
And those who rashly them oppos'd
did sad Examples make.
9 With Worship at his sacred Courts
exalt our God and Lord;
For He, who only holy is,
alone should be ador'd.
