1The Lord is King! Lift up thy voice,
O earth, and all ye heavens, rejoice!
From world to world the joy shall ring,
The Lord Omnipotent is King.
2The Lord is King! Child of the dust,
The Judge of all the earth is just:
Holy and true are all His ways:
Let every creature speak His praise.
3He reigns! Ye saints, exalt your strains,
Your God is King, your Father reigns;
And He is at the Father’s side,
The Man of Love, the Crucified.
4O, when His wisdom can mistake,
His might decay, His love forsake,
Then may His children cease to sing,
The Lord Omnipotent is King! Amen.
