Words: Isaac Watts
PART 1. Christ's kingdom and majesty. 1 The God Jehovah reigns ! Let all the nations fear; Let sinners tremble at his throne, And saints be humble there. 2 Jesus the Savior reigns ! Let earth adore its Lord; Bright cherubs his attendants stand, Swift to fulfill his word. 3 In Zion is his throne, His honors are Divine; His church shall make his wonders known, For there his glories shine. 4 How holy is his name! How terrible his praise! Justice, and truth, and judgment join In all his works of grace. PART 2. A holy God worshipped with reverence. 1 Exalt the Lord our God, And worship at his feet; His nature is all holiness, And mercy is his seat. 2 When Isr'el was his church, When Aaron was his priest, When Moses cried, when Samuel prayed, He gave his people rest. 3 Oft he forgave their sins, Nor would destroy their race; And oft he made his vengeance known, When they abused his grace. 4 Exalt the Lord our God, Whose grace is still the same; Still he's a God of holiness, And jealous for his name.
