1 God reigns! Earth rejoices! Oceans shout God’s might!
Clad in truth and joy, God’s throne is our delight.
Clouds roll aside, and night becomes as day.
God will dwell among us; God will show the way!
2 Fires will blaze the pathway; stars will mark the place,
when God comes in glory, meets us face to face.
Mountains will shake and worthless idols fall;
Zion will rejoice, for God is Lord of all!
3 Evil walks beside us, crushes with its grief;
yet in God the faithful find their sure relief.
Shackles will break and chains of bondage cease;
former lamentations now are songs of peace.
4 Light dawns for the righteous, joy for God’s own heirs —
love all loves excelling, grace beyond compare.
Daughters and sons, God’s majesty proclaim!
Let your hearts declare the Lord’s most holy name!
