Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

The Reign of Christ

O God, to Thy Anointed King

Published in 2 hymnals

Full Text

1 O God, to thy Anointed King
Give truth and righteousness;
Thy people He will justly judge
And give the poor redress.

2 Then every fruitful mountain side
Shall yield its rich increase,
And righteousness in all the land
Shall bear the fruit of peace.

3 The poor man's cause He will maintain,
The needy He will bless,
And He will break the strength of those
Who would the poor oppress.

4 So men shall fear Thee wile the sun
In daily splendor glows,
And through all ages, while the moon
On earth its light bestows.

5 Like rain upon the new-mown grass,
That falls refreshingly,
Like gentle showers that cheer the earth,
So shall His coming be.

6 The righteous in His glorious day
Shall flourish and increase;
The earth, until the moon shall fade,
Shall have abundant peace.
