God Doth Reign

Representative Text

1 Praise the Lord, O starry skies,
Make his glories known.
Nations of the earth arise,
Claim him as your own.
Islands of the far off seas,
Bring your homage now,
Laud and magnify his name,
Low before him bow.

Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!
Great and glorious, all victorious,
God doth reign.
King of kings! Lord of lords!
Great and glorious, all victorious,
Praise the Lord!

2 Join, mankind, in Nature's song,
Praise of God to sing;
Now enthroned in ev'ry heart
Let him reign as King.
Evermore to him ascribe,
In a glad accord,
Majesty forevermore,
Praise, O praise the Lord. [Chorus]

3 Join with Nature's voices strong
Praise of God to sing;
Fountains, rivers and the sea,
All their praises bring;
Flow'rs and shrubs of brilliant hue
Join the swelling lay;
Dome of heav'n, eternal blue,
Swells the song today. [Chorus]
