1 Trembling soul, beset by fears,
"Thy God reigneth!"
Look above and dry thy tears:
"Thy God reigneth!"
Though thy foes with pow'r assail,
naught against thee shall prevail;
trust in him - he'll never fail:
"Thy God reigneth, thy God reigneth!"

2 Sinful soul, thy debt is paid;
"Thy God reigneth!"
On the Lord thy sins were laid;
"Thy God reigneth!"
On the cross of Calvary,
Jesus shed his blood for thee,
from all sin to set thee free:
"Thy God reigneth, thy God reigneth!"

3 Seeking soul, to Jesus turn;
"Thy God reigneth!"
None that seek him will he spurn;
"Thy God reigneth!"
Wand'ring sheep the Shepherd seeks,
and when found he ever keeps,
for "he slumbers not nor sleeps":
"Thy God reigneth, thy God reigneth!"

4 Join, ye saints, the truth proclaim,
"Thy God reigneth!"
Shout it forth with glad acclaim,
"Thy God reigneth!"
Zion, wake! the morn is nigh,
see it break from yonder sky;
loud and clear the watchmen cry:
"Thy God reigneth, thy God reigneth!"

5 Church of Christ, awake, awake!
"Thy God reigneth!"
Forward, then, fresh courage take:
"Thy God reigneth!"
Soon, descending from his throne,
he shall claim thee for his own;
sin shall then be overthrown:
"Thy God reigneth, thy God reigneth!"
