The LORD Reigns, Let the Earth Be Glad!

  1. The LORD reigns, let the earth be glad!
    Let distant shores express delight!
    Thick clouds and darkness cover him;
    his throne is built on truth and right.
  2. Fire goes before him and consumes
    his enemies on ev’ry side.
    His lightning flashes light the world,
    and all the earth is terrified.
  3. Hills melt like wax before the LORD,
    before the Lord of all the earth.
    The heav’ns proclaim his righteousness;
    all peoples see his glorious worth.
  4. All those who worship images
    are put to everlasting shame;
    their worthless idols are their boast—
    you gods, bow down before his name!
  5. Your judgments gladden Zion’s hills,
    bring Judah’s daughters great delight.
    Above the earth and all the gods,
    exalted is the LORD Most High.
  6. Hate evil, you who love the LORD;
    his faithful ones he will defend,
    and from the hands of wicked men
    to them deliv’rance he will send.
  7. Upon the righteous light will shine,
    and joy for those of upright heart.
    You righteous in the LORD, rejoice,
    and praise unto his name impart.
