The LORD God Reigns on High

  1. The LORD God reigns on high;
    let all the peoples quake!
    He sits enthroned on cherubim;
    let all earth shake!
    In Zion God is great;
    o’er all the world enthroned.
    O praise his great and awesome name,
    the Holy One!
  2. The mighty King is just,
    ordaining equity;
    in Jacob you love justice,
    judging righteously.
    Exalt the LORD our God,
    and worship him alone.
    O come and at his footstool bow,
    the Holy One.
  3. For Moses was his priest,
    and Aaron was the same;
    among them also Samuel
    invoked his name.
    They called upon the LORD;
    he from the cloud was heard.
    His testimonies they obeyed
    and kept his word.
  4. O LORD our sov’reign God,
    you answered their lament.
    O God you were forgiving, yet
    their wrongs avenged.
    Exalt the LORD our God;
    before his mountain come
    and worship God, for he is LORD,
    the Holy One.
