1 Jehovah reigns, let all
The guilty Nations quake;
On Cherubs Wings he sit, enthron'd:
Let Earth's Foundations shake:
In Sion he is great,
Above all People high;
O Praise his holy Name,
Who dwells above the Sky,
In awful Majesty.

2 For Truth and Justice still,
Or Strength and Pow'r take Place;
His righteous Judgments are,
Dispens'd to Jacob's Race:
Therefore exalt the LORD,
Before his Footstool fall
In Adoration low;
And with his Pow'r, let all
His Holiness extol.

3 Moses and Aaron thus,
Amongst the Priestsador'd
Samuel his Prophet too,
He heard, when they implor'd:
Before the Camp, their Guide
The cloudy Pillar mov'd;
They kept his Laws, and they
Obedient Servants prov'd,
His Ordinance they lov'd.

4 He heard, and oft forgave
His People for their Sake;
And those who them oppos'd,
Did sad Examples make;
Then, in his sacred Courts,
Due Praise to him afford,
For he who holy is,
Alone should be ador'd:
Ye Saints, praise ye the LORD.
