64. God, the Lord, a King Remaineth

1 God, the Lord, a king remaineth,
Robed in his own glorious light;
God hath robed him, and he reigneth;
He hath girded him with might.
Alleluia! Alleluia!
God is King in depth and height.

2 In her everlasting station
Earth is poised, to swerve no more;
Thou hast laid thy throne's foundation
From all time where thought can soar
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Lord, thou art for evermore.

3 Lord, the waterfloods have lifted,
Ocean floods have lift their roar;
Now they pause where they have drifted,
Now they burst upon the shore
Alleluia! Alleluia!
For the ocean's sounding store.

4 With all tones of waters blending,
Glorious is the breaking deep;
Glorious, beauteous without ending,
God who reigns on heaven's high steep.
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Songs of ocean never sleep.

5 Lord, the words thy lips are telling
Are the perfect verity:
Of thine high eternal dwelling
Holiness shall inmate be.
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Pure is all that lives with thee.
