1 There is One who reigns throughout creation wide,
Over land and water, over wind and tide,
He is King and Ruler, He is Friend and Guide,
‘Tis the Lord and Maker of the world.
He reigns, all other kings above,
He reigns with justice and with love,
How great and excellent His holy name,
The heav’ns His work proclaim.
He reigns, in majesty alone,
He reigns, on yonder shining throne,
Let earth and joy with alleluias ring,
He reigns, our Lord and King.
2 At His call, the changing seasons hasten by,
At His word the sun and stars are set on high,
With His royal will, creation’s laws comply,
He is Lord and Maker of the world. [Refrain]
3 Let us worship gladly at His great white throne,
Let us bow in service unto Him alone,
Let us make the pledge of our allegiance known,
To the Lord and Maker of the world. [Refrain]
