The Lord He rules the Universe,
He’s clothed in majesty;
His power, His glory, manifest,
He reigns eternally.
The swollen streams of heathen rage,
As long as this world stands;
Flood after flood in every age,
But none can break His bounds.
Mightier Lord than all their noise,
Than all the oceans wave;
Yes than the noise of all the seas,
Your throne they’ll not remove.
The Lord is great His power supreme,
More than the floods of men;
They rise and fall in pride they dream,
But God is God, Amen!
O you His folk trust in the Lord,
His testimonies sure;
You have His sure and certain word,
It ever shall endure.
(Tune: Belmont; CM)
