The Lord in Zion Reigneth

Representative Text

1 The Lord in Zion reigneth!
Let all the earth rejoice,
And come before his throne of grace
With tuneful heart and voice;
The Lord in Zion reigneth,
And there his praise shall ring,
To him shall princes bend the knee,
And kings their glory bring.

2 The Lord in Zion reigneth,
And who so great as he?
The depths of earth are in his hands,
He rules the mighty sea;
O crown his name with honor,
And let his standard wave,
Till distant isles beyond the deep
Shall own his pow'r to save.

3 The Lord in Zion reigneth,
These hours to him belong,
O enter now his temple gates,
And fill his courts with song;
Beneath his royal banner,
Let ev'ry creature fall,
Exalt the King of heav'n and earth,
"And crown him Lord of all!"
