The LORD Reigns, Let the Earth Be Glad!
- 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.
- Fire goes before him and consumes
his enemies on ev’ry side.
His lightning flashes light the world,
and all the earth is terrified.
- 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.
- All those who worship images
are put to everlasting shame;
their worthless idols are their boast—
you gods, bow down before his name!
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
