Jehovah reigns su­preme:
Let na­tions trem­ble now;
He dwells be­tween the che­ru­bim:
Let earth be­fore Him bow.

The Lord in Zi­on reigns
O’er all the earth abroad;
Ye na­tions, praise His glo­ri­ous name,
For ho­ly is our God.

The King al­migh­ty lives
Just judg­ment to main­tain;
He rules His peo­ple right­eous­ly
And makes His jus­tice plain.

Exalt ye now the Lord,
Our God in prais­es laud,
And at His foot­stool wor­ship Him,
For ho­ly is our God.
