Representative Text

1 The Lord omnipotent shall reign
Where’er the sun doth shine;
His right to rule earth’s kings shall own,
And bless His sway divine.

Then magnify His matchless name,
Let anthems ring from shore to shore;
On sea and land, in loud acclaim,
Exalt Him evermore.

2 The Lord commands, and it stands fast,
He speaks, and it is done;
Forevermore His reign shall last,
Enduring is His throne. [Refrain]

3 He calls us now to do and dare,
The world for Christ to gain,
That in His kingdom we may share,
As kings and priests to reign. [Refrain]
