1 Say to the nations, Jesus reigns,
God's own Almighty Son;
His power the sinking world sustains,
And grace surrounds his throne.
2 Let heaven proclaim the joyful day;
Joy through the earth be seen;
Let cities shine in bright array,
And fields in cheerful green.
3 Let an unusual joy surprise
The islands of the sea;
Ye mountains, sink; ye valleys, rise;
Prepare the Lord his way.
4 Behold, he comes, he comes to bless
The nations as their God;
To show the world his righteousness,
And send his truth abroad.Source: The Voice of Praise: a collection of hymns for the use of the Methodist Church #245
