During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

The Lord doth reign, the earth

The Lord doth reign, the earth

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 JEHOVAH reigns! O let the earth
exult with joyful voice:
And all the multitude of isles,
exceedingly rejoice.
2 Thick clouds and darkness round Him spread;
and yet the world must own,
That righteousness and judgment sit
for ever on his throne.

3 Fire goes before Him; and it burns
His foes up ev'ry where:
4 His light'nings lighten thro' the world;
earth sees and shakes for fear.
5 Before JEHOVAH's face, behold
the mountains melting down;
Like wax before the Lord, who all
the earth doth rule and own.

6 The heav'ns on high his righteousness
to all abroad declare;
And to all people through the earth
his glory doth appear.
7 All who serve graven images,
shall now confounded be;
And all who of their idols boast:
all GODS HIM worship ye!

S Mount Zion hears and sees with joy;
all Judah's daughters are
Exceeding glad; because O LORD,
thy judgments now appear.
9 For over all the earth abroad,
JEHOVAH, Thou art high;
Supream above all other GODS
exalted wondrously.

10 All ye who truly love the LORD,
all evil hate: for He,
The souls of all his saints will keep,
and from the wicked free.
11 For such as righteous are, is sown
a seed of shining light,
And of immortal joy for those
who are in heart upright.

12 Rejoice ye righteous in the LORD,
your joy in Him express;
And give Him thanks in mem'ry of
his glorious holiness.
