Representative Text

1 Jesus reigns and His kingdom is founded,
On the Rock that in ages is grounded;
By eternity’s shore it is bounded,
Throughout time without end Jesus reigns.

He reigns, Jesus reigns, and eternal pow’r He wields,
Before His throne, the universe its homage yields;
His word is the law of creation’s wide domains,
He reigns in earth and heaven, Jesus reigns.

2 Jesus reigns o’er a realm widely bordered,
In our hearts are His judgments recorded,
And our lives by His precepts are ordered,
As a sov’reign divine Jesus reigns. [Chorus]

3 Jesus reigns, to His throne He ascended,
By the angels of glory attended,
With their songs let our voices be blended,
Sing the story of love, Jesus reigns. [Chorus]
