Jehovah reigns, the earth

Jehovah reigns, the earth

Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 JEHOVAH reigns! the earth
O let hereat rejoice,
The num'rous isles with mirth
Lift up on high their voice.
2 About Him round
Dark clouds there went;
Right and judgment
His throne do sound.

3 Fire goes before his sight,
Burns up his foes about:
4 The world is fill'd with light.
By light'nings He sends out.
The earth doth fear,
And greatly shake;
5 The mountains quake,
And melting are,

As wax before the LORD,
Before the Lord, who is
O'er all the earth ador'd.
6 That righteousness of his
The heav'ns high shew ;
That all may know,
On earth below
His glory view.

7 Who graven images
Adore, on them abide
Shall utter shamefulness,
Who in their idols pride:
But worship HIM;
Down to HIM bow,
Ev'n all of you,
Whom GODS they name.

8 Zion heard and was glad,
Glad Judah's daughters were;
This cause O LORD, they had,
Thy judgments did appear.
9 For LORD Thou high
All earth art o'er,
All GODS before
In dignity.

10 All ye who love the LORD,
All evil hate do ye:
To his saints souls afford
Protection safe does He;
Yea He'll command,
And timely see
They shall be free
From wicked hand.

11 For those who righteous are,
Is sown a shining light,
And gladness for their share,
Who are in heart upright.
12 Joy in the LORD;
With thankfulness
His holiness
Ye just, record.
