1God the Lord a King remaineth,
Robed in His own glorious light;
God hath robed Him, and He reigneth;
He hath girded Him with might.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
God is King in depth and height.
2In her everlasting station
Earth is poised, to swerve no more;
Thou hast laid Thy throne’s foundation,
From all time where thought can soar.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Lord, Thou art forevermore.
3Lord, the water-floods have lifted–
Ocean-floods have lift their roar;
Now they pause where they have drifted;
Now they burst upon the shore:
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
For the ocean’s sounding store.
4With all tones of waters blending,
Glorious is the breaking deep;
Glorious, beauteous, without ending,
God who reigns on heaven’s high steep.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Songs of ocean never sleep.
5Lord, the words Thy lips are telling
Are the perfect verity:
Of Thine high eternal dwelling
Holiness shall inmate be.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Pure is all that lives with Thee. Amen.
Psalm24:7-107 Lift up your head, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. 8 Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle. 9 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. 10 Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.
Psalm93:1 The LORD reigneth, he is clothed with majesty; the LORD is clothed with strength, wherewith he hath girded himself: the world also is stablished, that it cannot be moved. 2 Thy throne is established of old: thou art from everlasting. 3 The floods have lifted up, O LORD, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their waves. 4 The LORD on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea. 5 Thy testimonies are very sure: holiness becometh thine house, O LORD, for ever.
Psalm96:10,1110 Say among the heathen that the LORD reigneth: the world also shall be established that it shall not be moved: he shall judge the people righteously. 11 Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and the fullness thereof.
Revelation19:6And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.
